WNAC Snowflake Water Decals Nail Art


Today's WNAC design is brought to you by water decals available at Harlow & Co 😊

I was impatiently waiting for the 2021 winter collection by Essie to drop in Canada and so I went ahead and bought the 2020 collection not really knowing what they would look like - just that they would be shimmery - which I'm all about at the moment.

Luckily for me, they turned out to be quite beautiful and perfectly shimmered for my holiday mani needs. 😁


I used 3 coats of the Essie shimmer as my base, 1 coat of the Morgan Taylor holo, my trusty top coat and then topped with the snowflake water decals. Now, I did end up putting a top coat on after, but I didn't want to put it on for the pictures because the gloss would have made it harder to see the decals so I opted to leave it off.

This was actually my first time using water decals and I couldn't believe how easy and beautiful it turned out! I just cut around my design, as close to the design as possible, used tweezers to dunk the decal into water, waited 10-15 seconds (just enough so the decal easily lifts off the back paper) and then used the tweezers to transfer it onto my nail. As the decal dries, it'll stick to your nail so make sure your base is completely dry (I used my fast dry top coat) before using the decal. You also have a little bit of time with the placement as well so just work fairly quickly and then press the sticker gently onto your nail to keep the decal where you want it. Wipe off any excess water, let it dry, then do another top coat to keep your sticker in place. 

TLDR: It's actually very easy and I'm absolutely hooked! Must buy all the decals now! 😁

I already thought my nails looked like a winter wonderland without the snowflakes but I just love how it looks WITH the decals. 😍

Here is what I used for this design:

Base coat - Yellow Stopper
Essie* - Twinkle in Time
Morgan Taylor* - Coming up Crystal
Top coat - Seche Vite*
Water decal - Harlow & Co
