Last Holiday Mani: Decal Ruffian

*Press Sample
Hi everyone.  If you celebrate Christmas I hope you had a good holiday.  It's been a whirlwind for me between traveling to Iowa for graduation and traveling up to Chicago for Christmas.   It's nice to be back at home and relax a bit.  Today I have my last holiday look of the year.  I'm a little sad to see the holiday nail art go, but I am happy that we will be moving into a new year.  Admittedly this year was pretty hard for me.  I had a horribly stressful year at work and that was paired with loads of doctors visits and health problems.  I am looking forward to setting some personal goals and having a better year.

Today I have some decals that were sent for review from Born Pretty Store.  These decals included some holiday images like Santas and snowmen but also included decals like snowflakes and hearts.  To create this look, I started with a ruffian design with OPI Pompeii Purple and Essie Licorice.  I was surprised to find that these decals were actually stickers and they were so easy to apply.

To apply, you just peel them off the sheet like a regular sticker and place on the nail.  Easy peasy!  I applied a layer of topcoat to finish and I have to say that these stuck on really well. 

I was really impressed with these nail stickers and thought they were so cute.  They really are the ultimate easy nail art.  These decals are item no. 10483 and can be found here.  You can also receive an additional 10% off with my coupon code below.
