In school, some of my close friends call me “baboy” (piggy); all thanks to my my supreme fondness of eating siopao in between cheer dance practice and basically because I’m chubby – ugh! I don’t like saying that, sorry.. I’m in denial LOL! So when Ina of IamBabyPanda and I saw this piggy nail decals at Landmark after the iWhite briefing, we just had to buy it!
Do you know that feeling when you see someone wearing the same dress as you? Gaaahh I hate that! It makes me wanna go back home and change my clothes. But in this case, I really don’t mind getting my nails done the same way as Ina’s. You have to admit, these piggies are just to cute to pass up. LOL!
*Ina, I’m waiting for your post with the piggies!*

This is quite embarrassing but I feel like I owe it to all other nail art noobs out there to share this. Just so they won’t feel ashamed and alone. LOL! When I first tried nail decals, I was trying to fork off the designs out of the white background using my nails like it was a defective sticker. Again, I say this with much emphasis, I’M NEW AT THIS. LOL! I feel like such a noob. *face palm*
Here’s another infographic for the step-by-step photo tutorial on how to use nail decals,
TIPS: Cut out all the pieces you’ll be using before you start but don’t put them in the water all at the same time. Don’t forget to remove the plastic film before soaking it in the water. Else, the design will stick to the film instead and this will render it useless. Next, don’t panic about positioning the design on your nails. You have about a minute – or until it dries – to move it around until you’re perfectly happy with the placement. Lastly, use a sponge or a clean cloth and dab it gently on the design to remove excess water. This will secure its position until you finish all nails and before applying the colorless polish.
As for the result,
