Octopus Party Nail Lacquer | More Summer Decal Nail Art

Have you had enough Octopus Party Nail Lacquer yet? I haven't. Neons are among my favorite things, right up there with ice cream and quiet. Once I (sorta) figured out decals, I just could not stop. I had to actually go out in public during the day so I decided to do my nails up fancy-like.

To do this one, I painted a patch of clear on my silicone baking sheet (don't you judge me) and let it dry. Then I plopped a few drops of Sobriquet on there and used a large dotting tool to draw random-ass lines all over. Then I let it set up a little, threw on  more topper and waited. I'm still ironing out the kinks when it comes to application...but hotdamn do I love the final product. 

Have you tried making your own decal yet?

  1. Love that neon green! It looks really good with the black. I also like the idea of DIY decals.

  3. I'm terrible at decals, I can make them fine, its the application that I mess up. I like this look though, looks like graffiti! :)
