DOGGY DECALS

Eight week old puppies are a ton of work. The end.

That being said, they're still cute. And since they are so cute, right when I decided to breed Tinlee, I also decided I should have nails that have Golden Retrievers on them.

Onto eBay I went in search of the perfect decals, and I found these little cuties.
OPI My Vampire is Buff, Golden Retriever water decal

I was really happy to not need a white base for these, and I went with OPI My Vampire is Buff which is my fave neutral and added some little hearts.

I much preferred these decals to the hummingbirds I used awhile back. Rather than needing to put them in water and then applying, I cut them, peeled off a plastic layer and pressed them right onto my nail. Then I put a drop of water on them, and the backing slid right off.  Some topcoat and done.

I was very surprised when I went to remove them last night. All of the polish and rhinestones were gone, and those little buggers were still stuck tight. Even using pure acetone took a little more effort than I expected. So I'm calling these a win.

I left them on for almost a week. Of course, lately I'm leaving everything on for at least that long. Right now I have just polish on. By the time I did a soakoff last night, it's all I had time for.

If I didn't work part-time, I'd never even get a blog post done, let alone nails.

Thanks a lot, puppies.

  2. Yay, was waiting for some doggy themed nails! These are great, can you post the link for the ebay shop you used for the decals pleeaase! I hate going in blindly for nail stuff on ebay, a lot of it's from China and if it does eventually turn up it's crappy half the time!
