Here are some really pretty Magico Nail Stickers that have been sent to me for review from Born Pretty
You can find them right here Magico Paper Fan and what’s even better is at the moment they are half price, and for non sale items you can use the code RPG10 for 10% off! 🙂
In this pack there is a lovely selection of pink and white blossom, buds, petals and the cute red fans.
I was a little bit worried that these stickers might be slightly transparent and the black stamping would show through the stickers, but I’m pleased to say that it didn’t at all.
One thing I did find a little bit annoying about them is they don’t stick very well to Seche Vite, they kept peeling up at the edges. To make sure that it wasn’t a problem with the stickers after I had removed this mani I tried a couple of the flowers over Nails Inc 2 in 1, and there was no sign of the peely edges!
The other stuff I used for this
Barry M Blueberry
- Filthy Gorgeous Air-Kiss
- Sinful Colors Snow Me White
- Hit the Bottle Black
- Moyou Suki 02
- Seche Vite
I think these stickers are a really nice quality product that’s really easy to use!
I have been making stamped decals again! 😀 this time I used images from two of my Moyou plates, 01 and 02 from the Suki Collection.
The polishes I used!
- Barielle Shades – Grape Escape
- Color Club – Ulterior Motive
- Revlon – Sweet Revenge (the pink one from the duo)
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Sally Hansen – Ivory Skull
- Revlon – Calla Lily
- Konad Special Polish – Black
- Color Club – Topcoat
Pink and Purple Cherry Blossom
I started off by making the flowers, you can find how I made them here.
I used Grape Escape and sponged on a little Ulterior Motive on the tips as the base colour, when that was dry I applied the flowers using the Color Club Topcoat like glue! 😀
When that was all dry, I applied a couple more coats of topcoat to seal all of my decals in! In some places on my nails there must be at least 6 layers of polish, it feels really thick like Gel! It took ages to dry, about half an hour
I really liked making the cherry blossom decals, even tho the tiny flowers where a bit fiddly to paint! The time it took to get them all on my nails was rather a lot longer than I would have liked, then getting them to stick was a pain! I think that it’s because I made them to thick, but I’m going to have to try out some other clear polishes to find the best one for decal making! 😀
This is still quite a new technique to me, practice makes perfect and all that! 😀
