Paisley nails

More short nails for you guys. I started with two coats of I love Hean 872 from the Pastel collection on all my nails. I was going for something simple, as I didn't want to make the difference in nail length too obvious. I made a decal on my Miracle Mat using my Essence black stampy polish and BP-L024. The paisley design has caught my eye so many times and I finally decided to use it.
I used 878 and 879 to fill in the gaps. There's always been some questions as to how to make decals on mats and stampers and all that. What I do is, I lay down a coat of clear polish (Essence Absolute Pure) on my mat, stamp, colour in my design and another coat of clear polish. I then paint my nails, do a bit of clean up and by that time my decal is dry. So waiting time is about 10 mins, but if you want to wait longer you can.
I then trim my decal a bit and then stick it on my slightly tacky polish. Clean up the edges. Here I used Essence's satin matte top coat on my ring finger. I think this was kinda cute. It made me like simple nail art again.
What do you guys think?


  1. So cute! I love the colors together. Not a big fan of paisley but I can stand it on one nail ;)
