Lacquer by Lissa - Whale Nail Art Decals

Press Sample

     The lovely Melissa for Lacquer by Lissa recently contacted me about reviewing her new nail decals. She was super sweet and asked me what I would like to see. My first thought was WHALES. I love whales and these decals are adorable! She even sent me gummy whale candies in my package. I was smitten. It was the cutest! 

     To find out how you can get this look, keep reading!

Ribbon Candy Stripes

     This might look hard to do, but I promise it's not. With a long, thin striper brush, I layered the three Essie shades over white until I got a nice amount of color. Once I was finished, I added top coat. I didn't think to do a tutorial at the time, but I can do one in the future if anyone needs it.

Ribbon Candy Stripes

      Personally, I've never seen nail art quite like this. I'm not going to say that I invented it since I can't confirm that I was the first. I wasn't sure what to call it and a few girls in one of my Facebook groups said it looked like ribbon candy. Hence the name.

     I LOVE THIS LOOK. These decals were easy to apply and held strong for the few days I wore them. Plus, the striped background was the perfect compliment  for them.
