Twinsie Tuesday: Nail appliqués

Hey everyone! I can't believe it's the first Tuesday of May. Today's prompt is simply nail appliques. At first, I wasn't quite sure what appliques meant but I knew that I was going to use Donna Michelle nail polish stickers that I picked up from Dollar Tree and hoped that they fit the bill. My design was pretty easy to choose since all they had at my store was flowers but April showers bring May flowers...

Before I applied the stickers, I went over my nails with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover to remove any access oils. I followed all the instructions on the back of the package except cut down the sticker. I didn't have to struggle too much with the application process but given that my nails are curved and these stickers are straight/flat, I had a bit of wrinkling on the sides. It's not too bumpy but I've used other nail stickers that laid down better. I topped my nail stickers with a random top coat because I wash my hands a lot at work and want to avoid having naked nails at work. I'll update later with how long these nail stickers last.
