31 Day Challenge: Delicate Print

Yes, you're seeing it right, today's manicure features flowers. I know, totally out of character. Although...didn't I just post a floral design yesterday? Ok, so maybe I did but don't judge me, I didn't have a choice!

furious filer delicate #31dc2016 nicole diary water decals

I really didn't have much time last night to paint my nails so for that extra oomph I added water decals. These are from Nicole Diary (number 08*) and I am hoping to feature a few different designs by the time this challenge is over. The thing I notice with these straight away was that they had to be submerged in water for a bit longer for the backing paper to come off. Other than that they were durable and didn't have that 'plastic' or 'tissue paper' feel. Those often rip when I try to adjust them on my nails. The decals feature a delicate floral pattern on 2 strips of paper as opposed to an individual piece for each nail, so you can choose whatever part of the design you like.
