Glow In The Dark Nail Stickers

There are a lot of Glow-in-the-dark stuff around us, from toys to nail polish.  Take the idea into nail art and we have Glow In The Dark nail stickers.

The new Glow In The Dark water nail stickers are now available at EsthersNC.com. These stickers are super fun to wear. They glow green in the dark while look white or colorful in the light. Perfect for Halloween or any night events.

Since they are water transfer decals, you need water to apply.  Expose them to light for a few minutes before seeing them glow in the dark. Otherwise, they won’t glow brightly or won’t glow at all.  Repeat if necessary.

How to Apply

  1. Clean the nails with nail cleanser.
  2. Apply nail polish as a background. Wait until it dry.
  3. Select your choice of sticker and cut it out. Remove the film from it.
  4. Place it into water 10-20 seconds. Use warm water in winter. It does not matter if you place it face-down or face-up. Wait until the paper backing is wet.
  5. Moisten the fingernail. Place the sticker in position.
  6. Let’s wait for 1 or 2 minutes to let the sticker fully set.
  7. Dry nail with paper towel.
  8. Apply top coat to seal the nail art.

Black Lace Nail Design

Simple and elegant black lace nail art design, yet very easy. This is a combination of black tip French Manicure with lace nail stickers to create alluring nail art design.

Even though this look is super easy to apply, I’m incredibly enamored with it and it ends up looking pretty intricate. I think these black lace French tips have a lot of detail to them and the overall look is pretty and alluring.

Black Lace Nail Sticker Design

Like I said, it’s a simple look to achieve. I used French manicure guideline stickers to apply my black tips, placed my lace nail stickers and sealed them in with a topcoat to finish.

I only used two lines for all ten of my nails, so one $2.99 pack really goes a long way. They’re 3D stickers which mean the black is slightly “bubbled up” to give them more of a lace-like appearance when they’re on your nails. This gives an interesting texture to the overall look. Each row is one long strip, so you can trim them to the perfect width and mix and match the different lace designs.

These black lace nail stickers were sent to me by the always friendly Esther’s Nail Center, so a big thank you to them for their kindness. (Their nail stickers are all 20% off right now until 8/31/2010.)

Here’s a closeup so you can see the texture of the stickers.

I love this look a lot! Maybe it’s not so summery but I don’t mind; these are my favorite nail stickers at the moment. What do you think of my quick and easy black lace nails?

While I do enjoy creating designs from scratch, several times a month I opt instead for plain color or nail stickers to give myself a break from the time and effort that’s involved in handpainting nail art. I’m a big fan of nail stickers in general and I buy quite a few myself whenever I find cute ones; they’re the fastest way to get intricate embellishments on without any other needed supplies.

Recently I was sent a type of nail sticker that I’ve never seen before, designs made out of glitter that are meant to cover your entire nail plate. If you’ve ever tried those dry nail polish strips from Avon, Sephora or Incoco, these work in a similar fashion but are composed of glitter and have cute designs integrated onto the sticker itself.

My overall favorite thing about these is how fast they are to put on; the whole process only takes a few minutes and there is no drying time unless you choose to add a clear topcoat. Compared to the hour or two I normally spend on nail art, these are a breeze.

There are plenty of stickers on a sheet and I have enough left for another two manicures so I’ll be saving what’s left for a time when I’m in a rush and need something cute on my nails quickly.

Clean your nail plate

The first step in applying glitter nail stickers is to clean your nail plate by running a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover over your nails. It only takes a second, and it can really extend the life of your manicure because stickers will adhere better to nails that are free of natural oils or hand soap moisturizers.

Place sticker on nail

Simply place a sticker against your nail. I like to pick up all my nail stickers with tweezers because again, it keeps my skin’s natural oils from touching the back of the sticker so the adhesive can remain as sticky as possible. I also think it’s easier to place a sticker successfully when it’s held with tweezers.

Push on the sides of the sticker to conform it to the curves of your nail. These are very thin and stick well if you apply a little pressure. Using small cuticle scissors, trim off any excess.

Press the nail sticker

The only downside to stickers that are meant to cover your entire nail is that they might not perfectly fit everyone’s nail shape, but when you’re after a quick and simple process I think perfection isn’t usually the main concern. As you can see, my cuticle curve is quite rounded, while these glitter nail stickers are almost square shaped, but once it’s on you can’t really tell and certainly from a normal distance it would not be noticeable if they didn’t perfectly match up.

It’s easier to trim the excess if you view your nails from the underside.

Keep any extra you trim off, because after being cut they are the perfect shape for glitter French tips. Just place any extra back on the paper and later on you can use them for a glitter French manicure. (If your nails especially long, you might not have enough extra left for this, but the stickers have a good length to them so I think most people should.)

Top Coat for Longer Wear

When you’re finished, if you like you can add a coat of clear topcoat to make your glitter nail stickers stay on longer. I’d recommend wrapping your tips to give the edge of the stickers a little added protection

I mentioned at the beginning of this post that my favorite thing about these was the short time it takes to apply them, but definitely a close second is the fact that they are even easier to remove. I’m sure you all dislike removing several coats of glitter nail polish as much as I do, as glitter polish can be quite stubborn. I was very pleased to discover that if you place a cotton square with nail polish remover on it against these stickers, they become slick and slide right off in practically one piece.

I think these would be ideal for young girls because the designs are fun and youthful and they are easy enough for girls to apply by themselves without the worry of spilling loose glitter or chemicals all over. If you have wide nails you might have an issue with a bit blank space on your thumbs in the same way that full image Konad stamping plates never completely cover my thumbs, but that’s not a deal breaker for me as most people would never notice a bit of space on the sides anyway. All in all these were really fun to apply and I love penguins!

A big thank you to Esther’s Nail Center for kindly sending me the glitter nail stickers I used in this post. They have seven different styles available for $3.99 each, with thirty stickers of varying sizes on each sheet. Get the glitter nail stickers now!
