Over the weekend I tried out the Cute Dot and Bow water transfer stickers from KKCenterHK. Basically they are just like water decals, the are just made to cover your whole nail.
It comes with a strip of 12 water transfer stickers (decals) and a 'smoothing tool' which is just a small nail file. Below is what the strip looked like after I had cut the individual decals.
The directions say to clean, cut & trim to fit, soak & apply, smooth and apply top coat. It also says to peel off the protective film, but there was no protective film on mine. So I followed all the directions and the decal would not stay on my nail, it just kept sliding off, so I went to their website to see if there were any tips. On their website it says to soak the decal for 10-15 minutes, ain't nobody got time for that LOL and they will come off a lot sooner. It also says to dry the decal off with something so I used a cotton ball, it did help keep it from sliding around, but it still did not adhere to my nail. The second issue I had was the decals were so long and my nails are not, so most of the bow got trimmed off.
For me these were a fail, I didn't ever bother with putting top coat on them, I just took the photo and peeled them off. The packaging says by applying a top coat the decals will last up to 7 days, and only 1-2 days with out. Maybe they would have worked better if I had applied a base coat, the instructions did not say anything about it so I didn't do it. I also think they should have a long and short version so us nubby girls could use these too with out loosing any details.
