Today I’m wearing some more Moon Sugar Decals! These are a cute dreamcatcher design that come 33 to a sheet as shown here. BTW, did you see that I’m having an international GIVEAWAY where one lucky winner will get a $20 gift certificate for moonsugardecals.com ? Get on it!
For this look I painted my nails with OPI My Vampire is Buff and I did a wood grain accent nail using my MoYou London nail stamping plate. Then I put dream catcher water slide decals on the other nails. Don’t know how to use water slide decals? Here’s a step-by-step that I put together: DECAL TUTORIAL. I followed the same application process for these dream catcher nails, except I also applied a very light layer of clear nail polish before sticking the decals on. You don’t need to do that though. They stick well enough from the clearcoat that you put on afterwards, but I just felt like trying it a different way.
I also used a dotting tool and some Wet n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint to make some simple turquoise dots. It only took a minute to place the dots, but they really transformed the manicure. It gives a Native American feel I think.
I hope you like my nails and good luck in the giveaway! With a $20 gift certificate you could probably buy about 5 full sheets of decals! If you win…. which designs would you pick from their catalog??? I really like their sugar skulls, but I also have some of their lotus flowers that I haven’t tried yet. I got the lotus flowers from Julie at Short & Sweet in Texas. We purchase different decals online and then mail each other little samples. Julie and I are like an after-school-commercial… COLLECT THEM ALL, TRADE THEM WITH YOUR FRIENDS! LOL

I was recently at Sephora hovering around the nail polish display and I discovered the most beautiful blue I’ve ever seen- Illamasqua Cameo. I tested it out and I fell in love with it, but I could not justify spending $14.00 on one bottle of polish! Craftynail is way too thrifty for that! So I hit up the nearest beauty supply store to find myself a cheaper dupe. I came across Essie Butler Please and I think I paid less than $4.00 for it with my coupon! After getting home and applying it I realized it’s not at all a dupe for the pricey Illamasqua! The Essie is much darker and dried to a blotchy semi-matte finish. The two coats did dry quick though (which is always a bonus)… so then I taped my tips off with painters tape and added some Sephora by OPI topcoat called Only Gold For Me. Even though the Essie formula was not my fave, there’s nothing that some sparkles and a healthy topcoat of Seche Vite can’t fix! I really love the regal look of this gold and royal blue together! Apparently so does my mom- she came over tonight and asked me to paint her nails this color too… so now we are nail twinny twins!
