Friday Nail Art! Featuring Ever After Polish and Water Decals

*Sent for Review*
*Purchased by Me*

Happy Friday! I hope that you had an amazing week! I can't believe that it's going to be May in two days...time flies by wayyyy to quickly for me sometimes! Although, it is that time of the year; the time where I can pull out one of my favorite memes! 

Hey there, Justin! How's it going? 


Anywhoooo, let's get to some polish! 

A couple of weeks ago, I had ordered a couple of packs of full-nail water decals from ebay. I have recently fallen in love with water decals, and wanted to buy some in bulk! Well, I received one of the orders yesterday, and I just had to play with them! 

To start out with today's look, I chose one of the designs to use. I opted for a pretty pink cherry blossom design. 

After deciding on a design, it was time to choose a polish! I picked up Ever After Polish's Princess Christmas Cake. I had received Princess Christmas Cake to swatch and review back in the winter time, and fell in love with it then. 

Ever After Princess Christmas Cake is a light, baby pink, packed with silver flakies and linear holo. It was a part of the 'Tis the Season to Sparkle collection that was released this past winter; unfortunately, it is no longer available in Ever After's shop. 



 The formula on Princess Christmas Cake is smooth and easy to control. I like to apply a thin first coat, and then build up to opacity in three layers. Dry time is wonderful, and it dries nice and smooth! Shown in my pictures are three coats, plus glossy top coat.



 When I went to apply the water decals, I thought that they looked opaque and that I would be able to layer them over Princess Christmas Cake. Alas, they were more sheer than I had expected. So instead, I chose to paint my ring and middle finger with a white base, using one coat of Sally Hansen Tag, Ur It! I then cut the decals to fit my nails and applied them, then sealed everything in again with top coat. Here is the final result!


This look came out super feminine and delicate, and I really like it! I can't wait to play with some more of my decals!

If you are interested in water decals, I suggest that you search on ebay; they are super inexpensive, and I didn't have to wait too long for the shipping from China. To see one of the listings that I purchased, you can click right here!
