Hearts with Scrapbook Transfers

So this is the look I came up with for the scrapbook transfers. I actually have kind of a funny story - I saw this post by geezleweez where she talks about using scrapbook transfers on the nail, and I was like that is such a good idea, I should see what kind of scrapbook transfers I can find around here and see what I can do with them. So I went to Dollarama and I found these transfers, and was so excited and did this nail look with them which I absolutely loved and got so many compliments on. Then I remembered where I got the idea from and went back to her post, and it turns out I picked up the EXACT same decals as her just totally by accident!

Anyhow, if you can get your hands on any scrapbook transfers, let me tell you, they work wonderfully and look so great! This is definitely my new favorite way to do nails. Transfers are like clear backed very thin stickers. I haven't looked in Michael's yet but I'd imagine they have some great transfers.

One tip however, definitely make sure your nails are very very dry before you attempt to put a transfer on. Because you have to press fairly hard and sort of roll them onto your round nail, it will definitely smudge anything that is not completely dry.

Sorry for the slightly bad cleanup and dry fingers, I was just so excited to share this with the world that I wasn't being that vigilant ahah!


My favorite hand is the right hand. I didn't like the blue thumb in combination with the rest, I would have put the Starry Pink on the thumb instead. I loved the thumb, and I think that would make a good manicure on its own, but not so much with the others.


These are the colors I used, but I forgot the silver in the picture. The silver was Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Silver Sweep, then OPI Panda-monium Pink, Orly French Tip, Art Deco silver glitter striper, Revlon Starry Pink, and China Glaze Peri-Wink-Le. The transfers can be seen in my Dollarama post before this one.

You can see I smudged my middle finger, I definitely jumped the gun several times and smudged.

It was really hard to get the colors right in photographing it, but it was so pretty. Definitely try it out if you can, these colors together are great.
