DIY manicures have become somewhat of a regular hobby of mine, I always like finding new ways to do my nails. A few months back I was searching around the web for some nail art inspiration, I came across Nail Apparel. An up and coming Canadian nail decal shop that specializes in water-slide nail decals for pretty much every occasion!

Nail Apparel offers decals for holidays, cartoon characters, favourite fashion brands, icons, TV shows and many more for only $4 a sheet of 28 decals, $2 shipping. You can also have custom ones made and custom false nail sets are available as well! 

What a cool idea instead of nail stickers for something different. Use your favourite nail polish paired with Nail Apparel's decals for a fun new look to celebrate your favourite things.

Julie, who runs Nail Apparel was kind enough to send me three complimentary sets - One for my city's hockey team, one for our favourite TV show and one for my love of social media plus she even threw in some extras like Hello Kitty and Smurfs among other characters which my daughter was excited about!

Top coat, polish and decals are all you need to get started with simple nail art! I used my Maybelline Colorshow Porcelain Party and First & Last by China Glaze for the base and top coats. 

It was hockey season :) 

The print of the decals are great quality, I really like the Ottawa Sens ones. I did my nails for a hockey game, even if we were watching it at home! Go SENS Go! These decals are basic to apply following the directions included. 

Apply (and dry) your favourite nail polish, lighter colours work best for most decals but you can be the judge and match them up to fit what you need. Choose the right size decal depending on your nails and apply by soaking the decal and sliding it off onto your nail. Flatten out any air bubbles and allow to dry, brush a layer or two of top coat and you're done when it's dry. 

Please excuse the amateur polish job
but the decals turned out great!
Voila! Unique nail decals! It does take some time to do a great job (unlike mine) but they look really neat! These are only one time use (unless you apply to reusable artificial nails) but with the right polish and top coat, these can last a while plus they are only $4 a sheet. These decals can also be used with Gel polish and artificial nails, perfect for nail art enthusiasts! I look forward to see what Nail Apparel has to come! :) 

Thank you Julie for introducing us to your fantastic decals from Nail Apparel! 

Posted by AME. I received decals courtesy of Nail Apparel however this review is honest and my own. This post originally appeared earlier this year on my beauty blog however since closing its doors I have moved all posts here to AME.
