I found this beautiful pink nail polish with pearl finish and thought it would be perfect for this theme. And since I couldn’t go without adding art to it, I decided to use another set of floral water decals from Born Pretty Store.
I finished the whole design off with matte top coat and loved the result.
- Rimmel London Etheral
- Barry M matte top coat
The decals sheet had 10 decals in 5 different sizes. They were easy to apply, although I’d have wished to have a bigger choice in the sizes. They were a bit narrow for some of my nails. The length of decals is good though.

I am wearing 3 coats of it. The writing on the bottle states that it’s a 1 coater, but obviously that didn’t work. Applying was on the easy side though and I didn’t get brush marks. Drying time was on the fast side too as long as the coats were thin. Though before adding the decals, I used 1 coat of CND Air Dry top coat.
As for my base, I went with my usual preparation: 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails strengthener and after that 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat. After adding the water decals, I made sure that they were completely dry before adding top coat. I waited for 30 minutes and after that added 1 coat of Sally Hansen No Chip top coat. This way the decals didn’t bleed, like happened last time (you can see that HERE). And I finished it with a coat of Barry M matte top coat.
What do you think? I definitely find it perfect for the summer and it’s great with tanned skin. Also check out what other girls came up with by clicking the blue froggy at the end of this post. Till next time 😉
