Dreamcatcher Decals

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!

Here’s how to enter my giveaway: a Rafflecopter giveaway

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.dreamcatcher decals

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

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge: Day 4 Black n White- Dreamcatcher

dreamcatcher_nail-art

I have a quick post today for day 4 of our OMD Challenge….  It’s the Fourth of July in the US and I have plans to continue the celebration with some wine spritzers and cheeseburgers. 😀  I’ll make sure to keep my wits about me though- I still wanna squeeze in time for my next OMD mani later tonite!

The day 4 theme of our challenge is Black & White and I went with a dreamcatcher design.  I love dreamcatchers and I own a zillion of them… but it wasn’t until I saw the Polish Alcoholic’s dreamcatcher tutorial a few weeks ago that I became truly inspired to try it out!  Here’s what I used:

OPI Alpine Snow ♥ as my white base color

NYC Black Lace Creme ♥ with a detail brush for the dreamcatcher design

Zoya Carmen (red) ♥ with a dotting tool to make the ‘beads’

Pure Ice French Kiss (blue) ♥ with a dotting tool to make the ‘beads’

(I had to add a hint of red white n blue for the holiday!)

Hard Candy Black Tie Optional ♥ as a black n white glitter topper for my other nails
