Wild Watermelons

Full-nail decals can seem intimidating, but they are fairly easy to apply. Painting or stamping this kind of design would take ten times as much effort and time.

 Watermelon DecalsI received these watermelon decals from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review. The first and most important factor to note is that the background is actually clear, not white as they appear on the sheet. I assumed they were white, so I didn’t paint my nails, but it still looks cool over plain nails with the negative effect. The watermelons are transparent, so the decals will only work over light colors, and it probably pops the most over white nails. Since these are full-nail decals, you have to be careful when applying them that they don’t fold when you pick them out of the water. The decals will mostly likely be too large for your nails, but the excess can be easily melted away with some acetone on a nail art brush. If you use the acetone trick to melt the decals, be sure to apply a layer of top coat first. This will help prevent melting away too much of the design.

Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Black to Black
  • Matte top coat
Other Supplies:

As I mentioned above, I was not aware that the decal background was clear, so you may want to paint your nails white before applying the decals (that was the look I had in mind before I started). To create this look:
  1. Apply the decals on all the nails except the ring finger. Paint the ring finger black.
