A little while ago I reviewed some decals/vinyls from Cover Me ! Nail Art, and I really loved the vinyls and the designs I came up with! (Apparently you guys did, too, because when I had an extra entry option in a giveaway to recreate one of my manicures, 4 of your did the blue chevrons one and another person did the french tip one!)
So, I was excited when she asked me if I wanted to try out some of her new designs! She’s got four new additions to her lineup- a Halloween set, a Cosmic-themed set, Deep V vinyls and Step Pyramid vinyls. I’ll be showing you some nail art created with all of them at some point but figured I’d start out with the Halloween decals!
I’d just gone down to nubs when these came in and originally I was going to give my nails some grow time before using these but then I figured it’s important to show how well these kinds of things work on shorter nails too, right?
For those who have never used vinyls before, they work by applying them on top of your (dry) polish, painting a coat of a different color over top and then removing. You can also use them as decals by trimming the edges but I usually prefer using them as stencils. Let’s take a look!
I began with a base of two coats of Ellagee The Importance Of Body Language, which is slowly creeping up on me as one of my favorite vampy holos. On my ring and middle fingers, I applied the bat and ghost (isn’t he such a cute ghostie?) as decals and applied top coat over them. On my pinkie and index I used the stitches and drips as stencils. I applied a coat of Lyn B Designs Are You Ginger? on top, removed the vinyls and then used top coat. I also used the Jack O’ Lantern face the same way on my thumb.
Overall, I was really happy with how these came out, and just like last time, I didn’t have any trouble using any of the designs. Make sure to check out her etsy shop if you want to pick these (or any other designs) up!
What do you think of the design I created? Talk to me in the comments!
