For these nails, I started with China Glaze, Capacity to See Beyond, (from The Giver's Collection), a gorgeous bright aqua cream. The formula on this is rather thin and runny, it's very easy to flood your cuticles, so be careful. It worked best for me to apply it in 3 thin coats. I did my accent nail with 2 coats of Zoya Tomoko. Perfect gold texture polish.
The water decals are very easy to work with. You cut out the decals you want to use off the sheet. Then fill a bowl or cup with lukewarm water. For me, I hold the decal with my thumb & index finger in the water- you will start to feel the decal slide off onto your finger when it's ready. Then I flip it around and place on my nail. Don't be afraid of ruining the decal, they aren't that delicate- so it's easy to maneuver them. Once the decal is placed on my nail, I dab the excess water off with a napkin or tissue. (I finished one hand, before I started the other).
