Ok so it was a good thought but yeah every day is hard. Let's go with "more", shall we? I'm also going with trying to use all the stuff I order off the internet. I found these butterfly water decals so those! Needed a nice pastel colour to put them on, so Ciate Pepperminty was a good candidate. Let's flutter by these butterflies, shall we?
Ciaté Pepperminty is a nice pastel blue/green creme. It does need three coats to be properly opaque but it's fine with those three coats. To help speed up the drying process, I added a coat of Seche Vite before moving on to my water decal. Now, something important here. WATER DECALS ARE NOT LIKE TEMPORARY TATTOOS. DO NOT STICK THEM FACE DOWN. Instead, sit them decal-up on a saturated cotton pad then use tweezers to slide the decal off. I learnt this the hard way. I don't mind though as they have a strong white backing, meaning you get really vibrant images. Cover them with another coat of top coat and you're done!
The Verdict: Love the flutterbies, the decals themselves, and the polish. Win all round! I'm always happy when I can get a composition to look good, even if it's just sticking a bunch of decals on my nails. Composition has never been my strong suit so if it can look cool then I feel cool. YEAH. Butterflies.
