Manicure Monday - Floral Nail Stickers!

Whoops - almost forgot about my Manicure Monday on this long weekend!

I am making my mani a little quieter this week after my nail art last week! 

Here are the products I used:

  • Formula X Nail Cleanser & Base Coat
  • OPI Top Coat
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear #450 Caribbean Coral
  • flower nail stickers (these are a generic brand - found for a great price on ebay!)
Here are the steps that I followed:

For the nails with polish: (I used my thumb and ring finger)
1. Nail Cleanser & Base Coat 
2. 2 coats of polish
3. Top Coat

For the nails with stickers:
1. Nail cleanser
2. Buff the nail slightly (allows sticker to adhere better)
3. Place the sticker on the nail and rub vigorously to adhere (if you can use a little heat from a lamp or a hair dryer I find this helps them adhere a little better) and smooth over the nail
4. Pull over the top of nail & make sure there are no puckers
5. Use a file to remove the excess from the top of the nail

Here are my results:

I like the look of accent polish & stickers (especially with a really busy print - it tones it down!) and plus it's an easy way to use the leftover stickers from a full mani!
