This year like every other I didn't have time to do my nails for easter.
Luckily for me I had thought ahead.
I bought easter water slide nail decals from www.bornprettystore.com
It has Easter bunnies and Easter eggs!
Waterside decals are similar to the flash tattoos (refer my previous blog).
The steps for using them are:
1)Cut the decals you would like to use from the decal paper.
2)Place / soak the decal in water for about 15/20 seconds.
3)Take the decal out of water and simply slide the backing of the decal away.
4)Place your decal into the desired position on the nail and dry off the water.
5)You can then use a coat of top coat to seal your design.
6)If you do not use a top coat...then you will find that your decals come off.
I painted my yellow, pink and green for spring :P
I pasted a pink bunny decal on my yellow nail and the yellow Easter egg decal on my Pink nail.
On my green coloured nails I used two more bunny decals.
For my pinkie I sugar coat by Sally Hansen in white colour for a French mani effect.
One alternative is you can paint dots on the green nails.
I used these nail art pens by Hot designs that my friend sent me from Prague. But u can use a dotting tool or even a toothpick to create dots on your nails.
Rest of the products are:

In my February favourites blog I mentioned flash tattoos since then I've been using them a lot.
These tattoos are fairly easy to use.
1.Cut out the design of your choice peel off the plastic.
2.Place the tattoo face down on area of your choice.
3.Dampen the paper and press and hold it for a few seconds.
4.As the damp paper slides off voila there's your flash tattoo.
You can buy these tattoos on www.amazon.com or www.flipkart.com or www.ebay.com
I decided to try and use these tattoos to liven up my boring nails.
I had painted my nails pink and blue and after a few days they started looking dull.
I decided to use silver and black star shaped tattoos. And followed steps 1 through 4 that I mentioned above.
The only change here is I placed the tattoo on the already painted nails.
My nails pretty long so I used two stars on my thumb.
After Drying up the damp area surrounding the tattoo.
I used a clear top coat to seal the tattoo in place.
I used the Sally Hansen Topcoat on my nails .
Repeated the same procedure for the rest of my nails.
All my fashionistas, yes I know about water decals for nails.
But getting the water decals in Mumbai is a hassle so these flash tattoos are an easy alternative.
So wipe off ur tears ladies coz now u can have bling on ur nails in minutes.
M planning to do an Easter nail art using water decals. Lemme know if u guys wanna see a blog about it.
Till then keep smiling & bling up ur nails.
