So I really dropped the ball on this one. Last week I worked all 7 days. It’s been a rough end of September (and really just the beginning of the busiest volunteer season).
Last week, I wanted to rock out the last Monday of Summer with a lovely pink polish. I had gotten a lovely set of water decals from KBShimmer and thought it would make an excellent combination.

The Finished Product
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this “metallic pink” but I am happy I tried it. This polish also chipped very quickly – by the end of the day on Monday, I had to remove all the polish because it was that bad.
In regards to the water slide decal – it was the coolest thing ever! The decal is super easy to use:
- Cut out the piece that you want/need
- Soak it in water for 10 seconds
- Slide it off the backing paper
- Place it on the nail of your choice and press down
- Put on your favorite top coat and use acetone/nail polish remover to clean up the edges
The important part is that you follow the base color directions provided. I went with a nude even though it was recommended to use white. I think it came out okay, but the decal would have definitely been more vibrant had I used the white. Another fun tip: make sure that you wait for your nail(s) to dry enough before applying the water decal. Application will not work if you’ve already put a quick dry top coat on (I’ve tried it, it was disappointing).
I’m definitely looking into finding more water decals. KBShimmer has a pretty good variety, but I definitely want more!
