Fingernails with Facial Hair

Okay. I'm slightly embarrassed to share this fiasco of a paint job with you, but I've decided to share all of my adventures including the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Today I have an attempt at a fun french manicure with some moustache decals. I ordered these decals from My Crazy Worlds' Etsy shop. 40 decals for $3.50, and shipping is free! (And you can pick colors other than black)

As I mentioned, I'm not terribly happy with the results. I was in a hurry to do this, so I didn't use any sort of base coat. I should have used something like a light pink. Instead I just used my Sally Hansen French Manicure Pen on top of my bare nails. Then I placed the decals on my thumb & index finger with tweezers. Then I applied a clear, fast-dry topcoat. From far away, it was cute. But up close my cuticles are gross and dry, and the top coat started peeling the next day (probably because it had nothing to stick to).

This pen is handy for quick french manicures, but it is difficult to make straight lines even with your dominant hand. It looks much nicer if you use tape to make clean lines, in my opinion. 

My decals and the business card that came with it. 

I still have lots of decals left, so I plan to play around with these some more. I promise to do a better job next time! :)

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I'm actually loving the look! The mustaches are so cute and you did a really great job on the nails
