I'm back again with another water decal nail art manicure. I have been loving the new Revlon Gel Envy polishes so I paired the decals up with another unused colour. For this mani I used two coats of Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel in Roulette Rush on all my nails. Revlon’s Roulette Rush is a pink toned red. Sometimes it looks for pink, and other times red, it really depends on the lighting. Like the other Gel Envy polishes I’ve reviewed, this one went on evenly and opaque in two coats, and dried extremely quick. There was no chipping for about a week.
To accent these bright pinkish nails I chose to use the Barbie themed decals from the set numbered D227. I know I am a bit old for Barbie, but these decals were so fun! I used a different decal on each nail, and although it looked cool I think it was a bit much. I'll probably just use them as accents from now on.
1. Paint nails and let dry completely
2. Cut out decal you want to use
3. Remove protective plastic film
4. Dunk decal into room temperature water for 10-20 seconds
5. Apply to nail and dry
6. Top with a top coat
Above are the instructions for application as per the decal packaging. How these instructions are worded I've been applying the decals face down like a temporary tattoo. However, this is actually the wrong way to apply. You are actually supposed to peel the decal off the backing with tweezers and place on the nails. This makes it extremely difficult to apply. I probably wont apply them this way, and it wont normally affect the look of the decals. The only time you can tell is when there are words on the decals like with these Barbie ones, the words apply backwards.
