I've seen some really amazing nail art with the Zoya Delight collection lately, (See: Polish Hound, Painted Nubbs, and Manna's Manis!) And I wanted to try my hand at some as well.
I decided to do a gradient with the Zoya Delight Collection (press sample). I started with a a base of OPI Alpine Snow, and then sponged on Zoya Lillian, Leslie, and Eden. China Glaze Fairy Dust was applied, before using the butterfly water decals (XF1438) I was sent by the Born Pretty Store, and I dotted on Zoya Tomoko with the nail art brush BPS also sent me. I used Seche Vite topcoat.
The water decals are very easy to work with. You cut out the decals you want to use, 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 before top coating.
The rhinestone nail art brush is surprisingly well made. It's got some heft to it when you hold it in your hand. The rhinestones in the handle are purely for decoration. I like that it comes with a lid to protect your brush. The brush itself has a very fine tip.
