Nail art Stickers - Pussy on my Nails (nails of the week 6)

Another nail post you say? Well yes but this time I'm trying something very different - nail printing stickers from N.Nails

I got these stickers (with a pussy shaped cut out) from KKCenterHK.com
They are priced at US$2.67 (approx Rs147) The pack contains 10 stickers good enough for both hands (and one extra - so a total of 11 stickers)

The stickers come in a convenient packaging. The ones I have are red in colour (colour of the sticker does not matter). The instructions on how to use them are clearly listed on the back of the pack.

And now for the step by step procedure.

You start off by applying any base colour to the nails and let it dry completely. I painted my nails with a clear paint as the base coat.

Step 1. Gently take off a sticker from the pack. The stickers are almost like soft plastic which you need to take off carefully specially if the design is a bit intricate (like the tail of the pussy in my case). Choose the sticker based on its size and the finger you are applying it to.

Step 2. Stick the sticker on the inside of your thumb to reduce the amount of glue the sticker has. This step is important so that when you take off the sticker from the nail it comes off easily. If there is too much glue it will become difficult to take it off.

Step 3. Place the sticker on your nail (sticky side down) placing the pattern as desired. On my thumb I placed the pussy slightly towards the side whereas on the centre finger I placed it bang in the centre.

Step 4. Take your desired nail paint and simply paint in the cut out pattern covering it properly with a single stroke. Let it dry for about 10 seconds and then gently remove the sticker off the nail.

Volla! You have your pattern neatly painted on your nail!

I did mine one by one but you can easily put the stickers on all your nails at one go and then simply paint them all. This way it would be faster.


You can also add other patterns around the main pattern. I added pussy foot prints randomly on the rest of the nails.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and will surely try it again with a different color combination (and maybe I will put pussies on all my nails next time :) )


Handy Tip: try and use a nail paint that is not too thick and don't let the sticker sit for too long on the nail after painting it - both these tips will make sure that the pattern comes out neat and clean.
