Manicure Monday - Snowman and Polka Dots!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a great time ringing in 2018 last night! I'm excited for my first Mani of the year. 

Calgary has been in full on Winter mode since before Christmas and we have have so much snow here it's not even funny! It is starting to warm up a little bit so we are going to try to get in our back yard and build a snow fort! But, I thought I should have some cute snowy nails first!

How cute are these little Snowman faces?! They are from the Etsy shop PearlPlanet and they are in the Kitchmas set! (I was really planning on using the whole set pre-Christmas; but, that Winter cold had me doing no nails, so I'm saving them for next Christmas! 

Now, these little decals are easy to use - they are called waterslide nail decals (think temporary tattoos but for your nails!) so they are super easy to apply! I applied them after 2 coats of my base color, and I followed up with 2 coats of top coat as suggested by PearlPlanet! For my base polish, I used Sally Hansen in White On.

I'm a big fan of these decals - they are easy to use and look nice on the nails. The material is really thin so the edges of the decal don't show. I have used some similar decals that have been thicker and the edges showed too much for me! Also, with 2 coats of top coat these decals have lasted me 2 weeks in the past! (If you want to see the cutest Merkitten decals from this shop - you can check out my past Mani here!)
