Nicole Diary Water Decal Review - Pt. 2

*This post contains an item(s) that was provided for reviewing purposes however I will as always give my full and honest opinion. 
Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you are having a great week so far. I have been exploring Holland on Doris, I managed to get to the first subway station after the one at the mini mall! Its so weird riding on the opposite side of the road so I am sticking to the bicycle paths, the real road scared me a little, ha!

Today I have two more water decals to share with you from Nicole Diary. In case you missed my first review you can see it *Here*. So far its been nothing but a lovely experience, I am really enjoying how unique these water decals are and the ease of application.

I'd also like to mention that Nicole Diary have very kindly offered readers of IthinityBeauty a free gift worth up to $5 when you order from their Amazon/Aliexpress store and add the code 'ITH2016' to your order note - Isn't that super nice of them?!

This first design can be found: Here.

This first design is a beautiful combination of full pattern and sheer areas (in between the pattern) for this reason I decided to pair it with a beautiful silver holographic glitter underneath. Can you see the sparkle popping through the pattern and even under the decal colours? The colours on this decal are green, red and black and work beautifully together. I kind of get a Native American/Dream weaver feeling from them, don't you? I could be wrong. This manicure got me so many compliments!


This design can be found: Here.

The next set of decals are much more simpler if heavy patterns are not your thing. I think there's something really soft an feminine about this doodled/silhouette pattern. I feel like it would be well suited to some kind of soft furnishing! To keep the elegant and feminine look I decided to keep this manicure very light. I created a gradient using Rimmel's 'Breakfast In Bed' and Essence's 'A Girl With A Pearl' with a single accent of Essie's 'Beyond Cozy'. I finished by adding my decals and a single light green stud (Should have gone more pastel) and applied my Pro-FX topcoat.

I absolutely love both designs. You guys know me, I'm not shy of a full patterned nail! I also like that I can sneak glitters underneath for a little sparkle-pop! I think they would both be great for different occasions or as accent nails if you like a simpler but still super pretty manicure. I'm eyeing up the first one for big toe nail accents!

What do you think of these designs – which one do you prefer? Would you like to see how I apply my water decals in a video tutorial?

Have a beautiful day my friends, I'll catch you on Saturday!
Love
Ithi

    1. Thank you so much, Nailfame! I really love water decals if I am honest! A lot of the freehand nail art is really time consuming (although I love it) its nice to have very fancy and pretty nails so fast! :)
