Stamping with DRK-A plate


 I started this manicure out with softly tinted pink basecoat and I applied
two coats of it. Then I taped my nails so that I could easily apply the white
 tips. At this point I applied my first coat of top coat. With my DRK-A Plate
I stamped an image using Konad - Light Bronze on my ringfinger and
thumb  On the rest of the nails I stamped only one flower from that same
image. To get the rhinestones in place I applied a small dot of clear coat
to where wanted to adhere the rhinestones. It was all sealed with top coat.


Products used:
Constance Carroll - Base Coat with Ridgefiller
Tape
La Femme Beauty - White
Seche Vite - Top Coat
Drikk DRK-A Image Plate
Konad Special Polish - Light Bronze
AB Rhinestones ( Dollar Nail Art)
Orange woodstick to place the rhinestones.
Orly - Polishield Top Coat

Full Nail Water Decal Review

[ANE-2015]
[ANE-2015] 
Have you heard of www.kkcenterhk.com?
They have eyelashes, eyeshadows and other makeup, wigs, clothes
and nail art items. They sent me full nail water decals to try out and review.

[ANE-2015] 


Approx.Length : 3cm/ 30mm/ 1.1"
Water Transfer Sticker
Easy To Apply, Zero Dry Time!
Kit Includes: 12 Nail Tip Sheets And 1 Smoothing Tool

Water Decals are Not Sticky!

[ANE-2015] 

I decided to apply the full nail water decals on false nails as I did not want to cut
half of the image off, because I realised that it would take too long for my nails to
grow that long. And even though I used false nails I had to cut some of the image,
but not nearly as much as I would have if I had applied them on my own nails. 

[ANE-2015] 

Nail Water Decals Tutorial:

(I apply water decals on polished nails)

1. Peel off the plastic cover before use.
2. Size the decal with your own nail. Cut off the decal which has the best fit with your own nails.
3. Prepare a cup/bowl of water and dip the water decal into it.
4. Use tweezer to pick up the decal after a few minutes.
(The water decal will silde off the paper if you dipped it successfully.
If not, the decal will not slide off the paper - dip again until it sildes off).
5. Place the water decal on your nail and adjust the position.
(In this step, be careful. The water decal will be movable as it is still wet.
If it is drying on your nail, put a few drops of water on it and you can
continue to adjust the position.
6. Dab excess water with tissue paper when the decal is in psition.
7. Carefully file off any excess decal and apply top coat.

[ANE-2015] 

To my water decals I applied a shimmery polish here and there
(Essence Season of Extremes -Topper part of 06 My Best Nude
Friends and Me). And I added a few stars with Konad Plate M14
using Konad Polish in Silver and Gray Pearl. And to top it off I
applied Baby Pearls AB from dollarnailart.com to each nail.

[ANE-2015] 

Verdict
These water decals are of good quality and are easy to use. And when
you apply top coat they will be totally smooth so that nothing will catch on
your nails. On the package it says it is made of nail polish and it does kind
of melt or fuse with the polish underneath. As I applied these on false nails
I can not say anything of wear time but I think it is as normal nail polish.

Cheeky Image Plates - Photos


Here comes photos of my Cheeky Image Plate Collection. This is the first set.
The second Collection is in the making. More info on that at the end of this post.
This set has 26 plates from CH1 to 29 skipping numbers 18, 19 and 28 for some
reason that I do not know of. Do you? The plates has a backing so that the edges
are not super sharp and a protective  film that you need to remove before stamping.
The plates are same size as Konad and Bundle Monster and a lot of other brands.

CH1 & 2
CH3, 4, 5 & 6
CH7, 8, 9 & 10
CH11, 12, 13 & 14
CH15, 16, 17 & 20
CH21, 22, 23 & 24
CH25, 26, 27 & 29

And if you are waiting for the NEW Image Plate Collection from
Cheeky (Second Set),  as I am, you might want to take a look at this
statement from Cheeky Beauty, that they made about a week ago:

Hi Cheeky Chicks, we know that many of you are excited about our new set and looking
forward to its release. We want to tell you that we cannot wait for it to happen as well :).
However, in order to guarantee maximum enjoyment from this set, we are investing vast
amount of resources in research and development to make it the best set ever produced.
We work closely with many nail art specialists and bloggers around the world to get their
impressions and develop this set to the best quality possible. Our initial ambition for this
set was to produce the most innovative set ever made and we are still keen to do it.

We can tell you that some of the latest developments we incorporated in the set are:

1. Bigger full nail designs for those of you with long nails (the biggest in the market).
2. Bigger gaps between designs in order to allow easier clean up and better use.
3. Functional and branded packaging (we do not want to say more than that because
we will ruin the surprise).
4. New scraper that will be provided with the set.
5. More small surprises.

Cheeky Chicks, the reason that our launch date is delayed is only because we want to
supply the very best for you girls and nothing less. We appreciate your patience so much
and ask that you will bear with us a bit longer while we finish the development of the set.

There are two options:

1. We will release the set in 3 weeks without some of the developments mentioned.
2. We will release the set in 5-6 weeks with all of the developments mentioned.

Please let us know which option you prefer!

The Cheeky Team ;)
