MILV Water Decals - Roses in the Green

Hey guys! I've got another MILV water decal set to show you this week! I was so impressed with the first one that I could hardly wait to use a new set, they are so much fun! And you guys seemed to be impressed with he first one as well, so I hope you like this one too!


Let's check it out!
The water decal I am using this time is number N215. It shows different coloured roses in a bed of green leaves. At first I thought this image was completely opaque. So I painted my nails a matching green to make the decal blend in as much as possible around the edges. Well, this decal is not opaque, the white flowers are transparent... So when I applied a decal to the green I couldn't see most of the image, oops... So back to a white base I went. And it was only after all this that I found out that it actually says on the packaging of some of the decals when they are suitable for a white base only! Doh!

But as you can see, at least I'm getting better at cutting out the decals to fit my nails. There is still a bit of white around the edges (macro images are unforgiving, it's much less visible in real life!), but I am not too bothered by it, as the flowers are white now too. I also found out that if you cut the decal too big, it is easily corrected with a clean-up brush, as the decals melt when they come in contact with remover. Good to know!

As with the first set, I reaaaaaly love how this looks! I hope you guys like it too and see you next week!

  15. I saw you didn't cut them into shape first but just did it all with a clean-up brush and acetone? I'm going to try that next time! Your application was much nicer <3

  21. Hahah yeah... my 'white base only' warning was in Russian though! I saw on the Hypnotic polish webshop that some designs had it in English though, so that tipped me off!
