Polish days: Something new – day of the dead water decals
Well, it’s kind of far from Dia de Los Muertos, but I found these water decals and I really wanted to try them. I had never used water decals before, so when I heard the next Polish Days event theme was “something new,” I knew what I was going to try out. The water decals are just the skulls, which you can find here on ebay. I painted my nails white first since the decals are clear and black so that the skulls would be white. Next, I just drew around the outline of the skull with as many bright colors I could find. I ended up essentially scribbling a lot, but I like how it came out!

I’d love to try water decals too, these turned out great!
Thank you, they were very easy to use
This is so pretty!
Wow, it’s amazing !
Thanks for stopping by!
This is gorgeous !!!!!! It reminds of the scull folders I use to see at Walmart!
This turned out so awesome! I love how colorful it is!
Thanks. Pretty cheerful for skulls, huh?
This looks great. I love the bright colors that you drew all around.
Why, thank you!
Oh wow, this is awesome, I love this design! *off to ebay getting some water decals* 😉
You should check out their whole store on ebay, I was tempted to get more
I haven’t gotten around to buying water decals online yet, and the ones in the stores (that aren’t specifically geared toward nails) are never small enough to be useful. I’m about ][ this close to buying the water decal paper you can print on, because I’ve seen so MANY gorgeous water decal art manicures – and this one is right up there in temptingness! I was startled to read that you’d painted all those little doodad additions (“scribbling” as you called it) because they totally look like they were supposed to be there. They look like they’re part of the original design, not something you added in! Overall, you did an awesome job! 🙂
I was looking at the decal printing paper and it looked fun, but I figured I would waste way too much time messing around with them! Let me know how it goes if you decide to get them. Thanks for dropping by!
wow! never tried water decales either…looks awesome
They’re really fun!
