Ribbits Stickits-Water Slide Decals


Inspired by The Shining.

Instructions:
1. Paint nails, let dry completely.
2. Cut out the desired image.(Try cutting as close as possible to the image)
3. Place in warm water for 5-10 seconds.
4. Using your thumb & index finger slide the paper backing from the image.
5. Lightly dampen the back of the decal.
6. Place image on your nail, pressing down to remove any air bubbles.
7. Seal it with a top coat.

Tip:
If you prefer to use the decal over a colored/darker polish it's best to paint the back of the image with white polish/acrylic paint letting it dry before applying it to the nail. (which is what I did for this mani)
