Nail Mail is a UK based website which offers a variety of the nail vinyls/stickers we all see so much of now! They're amazingly easy to use in nail art (yes, even for beginners) and the possibilities are endless...the only problem is deciding on what ones to use!
For this design, I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and set it with some quick dry top coat before using the vinyls (highly recommended, it prevents the stickers pulling up your base coat, therefore preventing you from feeling a bit stabby)
I used some Chevron Zig-Zag vinyls to mark off the spaces, then I used Models Own Lilac Icing and Mint Icing on a make-up sponge to create the gradient, before removing the vinyls and finishing with top coat to smooth everything over. I love how it came out and it took no time at all!
What do you think? Have you used vinyls like this before? If not, now is a good time to give them a whirl! ;) there's lots to choose from on the website, I particularly like the look of the new Aztec design!
