Stamping Decal Mix & Match mani

Hi loves!

Happy almost Friday :)



Just a little quickie.  Pinkie finger has one coat of China Glaze Liquid Crystal over China Glaze Smoke and Ashes.  Ring and middle finger have China Glaze Traffic Jam, stripped with China Glaze For Audrey and various striper polishes.

 
On my index finger is China Glaze For Audrey, then using THIS tutorial I made my own nail decal using one of the BM stamping plates.  I filled some spots in using CG Traffic Jam & Frostbite, then applied top coat on top.  Once that was dry I applied a top coat to my nail, peeled the decal off of the stamper then applied it to my nail.  As you can see there is a TON of bubbling that occurred.  I'll have to give this another try, but I have a feeling these decals are better used for smaller stamping pictures and not full nail patterns.  Of course it could also just be user error since this was my first try :)  

What do you all think of the home made nail decals? :)

    1. Thank you! It made my index so thick it chipped off pretty quickly, so I removed that one nail and just added For Audrey and called it a day :)
