Hi everyone! Today I have an exciting post for you. My friend B is the queen of DIY and also a lover of nail art. She has decided to start her own vinyl store! Introducing BecauseIShop Nail Vinyls! Before she did this we were only able to get proper vinyls from international suppliers, not anymore! She used her nail buddies as guinea pigs for her new venture and I was lucky enough to be included in the lot. Let me show you what I did with them 🙂
I started off with Revlon Calcium Gel Nail Hardener as a base coat to protect my nails. I used China Glaze That’s Shore Bright (purple) and Peonies & Park Ave (pink) to create a gradient effect on all of my nails with a latex make up sponge. Once that was dry I stamped using my MoYou Fashionista 04 stamping plate (gift) and Tip Top Armour Plate on my pinkie, middle, index and thumb nails. On my ring nail I placed star vinyls from BecauseIShop and painted over them using Armour Plate, immediately removing the vinyls afterwards. On my other hand I used a unicorn vinyl and did the same. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
The vinyls were super easy to use. They are quite sticky, so make sure your base polish is 100% dry before using them. I managed to pull up my polish with them, but I am known to be too impatient with this type of thing. The unicorn vinyl is totally my favourite. Unfortunately in this prototype version you cannot see the mane of the unicorn, but B has since made them smaller so that you can fit the entire vinyl onto your nail. If you would like to see how the smaller version looks, check out Ordinary Misfit’s review. I really loved this mani!
I would totally recommend these vinyls. B is one creative lady and will definitely release awesome new designs. You can find BecauseIShop on their social media channels:
