Are you a fan of Batman? Superman? Spiderman? Or any of the superheroes? I wouldn’t say I am a super fan but when I saw these Batman water decals I knew I had to have them. From the moment I saw them I had this idea in mind.
I started off with a basecoat and this brighter yellow from Essence called Wanna be your Sunshine. This is what it looks like on it’s own:
This is a brighter yellow polish but not a neon. It does have very subtle shimmer in it as well. In the photos I can see some visible nail line but in real life it looked pretty opaque. It was definitely opaque enough for what I wanted to do.
I used water nail decals that I got from LuckyStarStyle. I used these specific ones for this design but have a look around because they have amazing decals!! I bet you want to have a look at my nails right?
This is what I decided to do. I took off the yellow polish on my ring finger and then put on 2 coats of Essence – Black is Back over basecoat. I then took my black LA Colors striper and added a black border to my pinky, index and thumb. I didn’t do a perfect job with the border unfortunately. Once all the polish was dry I cut one decal as close to the image as I could. I then tried to get it as central on my nail as I could and while using a few drops of water I added the decal. (For complete instructions on how to use these decals have a look here. Its so easy!!) After that I added topcoat to all my nails and I was good to go. (At this point I preferred to ignore the mess I made of my pinky finger and I hope you do too :P)
What do you think of my Batman nails? If you could do any character nails who would you choose? After looking through all the nail decals available I have SO many ideas. I have always loved Betty Boop and I think that would be super cute! I would love to hear your thoughts. Any questions? Hope you have a lovely weekend folks. I have plenty of nothing planned so it sounds pretty perfect to me.
Thanks for reading!
Awww its so cute! I would do Superman nails, but just because my son loves superman at this stage. Lol. Not a yellow nail polish fan. But the colour and decals look really cute together.
