Simple Sunday: Pink Teacup Nails ft. MoYou London Trend Hunter

Hello Readers!


For today's Simple Sunday, I am dabbling into the realm of water decals. It's fun to combine water decals with simple stamping for a quick and easy, yet detailed, nail look.


I think it kind of looks like a pink teacup. Very girly for this week's Sunday mani.


This look is super simple to achieve- just simple stamping for the pinky and pointer finger, and water decals for the middle two. I did put a white base under the water decals to help them stand out.

If you've never used water decals before, they can be a little bit intimidating but the process is fairly simple. First, remove the clear plastic sheet from the top of the decals, and drop the decal in a bowl of water for about 20 seconds. Next, slide the decal off of the paper backing and apply it to your nail, smoothing out any wrinkles. Use a brush with acetone to clean away any part of the decal that went over your skin, and apply a topcoat.

The stamp on my on my pointer/pinky fingers comes from this MoYou London "Trend Hunter 13" plate. I thought it was a fun twist on polka dots and perfect for a "teacup" look.
