So you're new to nail art and aren't comfortable using your non dominant hand yet. What do you do? Stick with boring plain colours or........make your own decals! It's super easy and inexpensive and both hands will look stunning. If you're new to nail stamping you can check out my detailed post here because I won't be going into much detail with the stamping process. Here's what you need to get started:
I used a silicone mat to make my decals on. If you don't have one, you can use a plastic sandwich bag or wax paper instead. To transfer the image you need a scraper and stamp. Now that you've got all your materials, let's get started.
Start off by painting a thin coat of your base colour onto the mat and let it dry.
Stamp the image onto the dried polish using the black polish. If you're new to nail stamping, check out a tutorial here. It doesn't take long for the stamping polish to dry, so you can move onto the next image quickly. I stamped the same image over top in silver polish, and then white for a funky marbled look. Add a thin layer of clear top coat over the decal and let it completely dry.
Once it's dry, You can peel it off of the mat. Lift a corner of the design and it should peel right off. Use scissors and cut the decal to the size of your nails. I always leave a little tab on the end of my decal so I have something to hold onto when placing it on my nails.
Paint a thin layer of clear polish onto your nail and then place the decal on top (Don't wait for the clear coat to dry). Press the decal down so it sticks to the clear polish. Once that's dry, gently file the edges of your nail to remove any excess decal that may be hanging over the edges. Add a topcoat and you're done! You've just made your own nail decals. Now you can fake it till you make it! But don't give up on non dominant hand nail art. You will get it, it just takes practice. Try these practice swatch sticks, they really helped me!
