Suds n Stickers

My friend Sarah recently told me about this Facebook page, Suds n Stickers, they do custom vinyl stickers, and vinyl nail decals! Like their page to see all of their amazing stuff! I liked their page and they were doing a giveaway, and I won one of the grab bags!! I was super excited, I never win anything! They asked if I had a preference of design for the nail decals, and I said I loved the large chevron. So I was expecting a little sheet of the chevron design to try them out. I got way more than I thought!

This is all of the decals that they sent! There are so many cool things to play with!

As if that wasn't generous enough, they also sent a polish with it all! It's OPI DS Magic! I only have one other Designer Series OPI, so I was super excited to see this! It's a gorgeous blue/purple duo chrome.

I decided to start with something that seemed easy. I picked this cute little heart design. With a pair of tweezers I peeled it up and applied it to my nail. I like this one because you can basically use the same design for 3 different nails. One with the outline, which was my favorite, one with the solid heart, and then last you can use the remaining piece as a stencil. I haven't tried that yet.

 I applied the decals over 3 coats of Butter London- Disco Biscuit. I did two coats of HK Girl over the decals to make sure they were good and sealed in.

I had two main concerns, one was that they would stick up off the nails and catch on things, like I had happen with the Jamberry strips. That didn't happen at all! They were stuck down really well and didn't come up until I was ready to remove them. The other concern was that they might be difficult to remove. That wasn't the case at all. As soon as the acetone got through the top coat, they peeled right off. I'm really impressed with them and can't wait to try more designs!

Can't leave out a swatch of Magic! The picture doesn't do it justice. It's so pretty!
