Ban The Bomb


I think this has got to be one of my favourite nail art designs so far! I'm so obsessed with peace signs, crosses and skulls on everything recently, so when I found these Peace Sign Nail Decals on ebay, I HAD to buy them.

Anyone who has used nail decals before will know how simple they are to apply, I was actually shocked at how easy it was! I started off by painting my nails with generous coats of Collection 2000's Hot Looks in Electric Dreams. After that had dried completely, I cut out circular shapes around the peace signs and dropped them in a small tub of water just before applying each one. After the decal had been sitting in the water for about 30 secs or so I picked them out of the water and the decal slid straight off the paper back. 

Th positioning is easy as once you've placed them onto your nails they are easy to move and slide about until they're in the right position. For this reason I prefer them to nail stickers, as once you place them on the nail its usually almost impossible to move them again. Then I allowed them to completely dry and painted over with clear nail varnish to secure. 

What do you think of my ban the bomb nails? Have you used nail decals before?
