I had the idea to put regular stickers on my nails since it sounded like a super-easy way to get a cute effect for Valentine’s Day. So I started rummaging through my sticker box (poke fun if you want, but I love my sticker box)! It’s the same one I’ve had since I was a kid and I’ve amassed quite a collection. My faves include my original E.T. stickers from when the movie first came out… and my cute Rainbow Brite stickers from the 80’s! I have a lot of heart stickers too so I decided on these red foil hearts. Then I picked a girly pink polish and started painting!
I used 3 coats of Sephora by OPI I’m Wired and then placed the sticker on my ring finger. I didn’t know if the Seche Vite topcoat would bead up on the foil sticker or not- so I used a thin coat of Orly Bonder on my ring finger to create a nice sticky surface on top of the heart. Then I applied my Seche to lock it all down.
These Valentine’s Day themed nails are so quick and easy! You could put more stickers on if you want, but after I placed the one down I felt like it would be enough. <I’ve noticed that if I’ve ever ignored my instincts in the past… that I’ve gone on to muff up the manicure.> So always trust your gut and have some fun with your stickers!

I found this works when OPI released this little mini Halloween collection last yr with the stickers in it. They said top coat it. Those were not foiled stickers however. What I do when I try something new is try it on a nail wheel or if one is not around, just a sheet of white paper works. I can see pretty much if colors blend – what an overlay will look like and yes – even stickers and what the top coat will do. I did try foiled ones at Christmas and tossed my SV over it – worked fine when I did it 2 times despite the foil – I think both of the bases were cream and not glitter…could see some of the bumpy glitters might not get a good hold from the sticker unless you really put down a thick couple layers of top coat – or Gelous or something to level it all out.
Ah these are so cute, I may do some similar for valentines.
