Nail of the Week 10/13, 10/20, & 10/27

Because I've been slacking, before I jump into the main event, here are some NOTW from the past few weeks. I should have three, but one manicure died before I remembered to get a picture of it. I hated it anyway because the polish I used had gotten super clumpy, so it's just as well!

I'm super excited to share my NOTW this week because I ventured into the world of water decals!

I mentioned before, but I love Sugar Skulls and Dia de Los Muertos. Love it.

I ordered some decals from Etsy, and I was really looking forward to using them. I realized I didn't have a purely orange polish, so I picked up Pure Ice Drive Me Crazy from Walmart for $2. I definitely got what I paid for. Sunday is my nail painting day, and by Tuesday I already had huge chipping. Plus, it's a jelly and I really don't like seeing my nails through polish.

But anyway, for my first attempt at water decals, I'd say these turned out pretty well. I did some reading up on them after, and I think the next time I try things should go more smoothly. I had some issues with getting them centered and straight, especially on my right hand, and the index finger on my right hand got rubbed away somehow, but otherwise I love them!

What do you guys think? I only used four, so I might be rocking these again soon! Who cares if it's not Halloween anymore!?


  1. Very cool! I don't paint my nails much anymore, which is kind of a shame. However, I did just get some new fingernail polish (yes, see, I still buy it...I just don't use it....yea....) that I may try out this weekend!

  2. This is the first time I've seen a post on water decals. I like it! Very festive :)

  3. Awesome! I wish I were that creative. Good job on the skulls :)

  4. I love the nailtini glitter and the sugar skulls are AWESOME!
