Custom Nail Decals: Bollywood Nails

 Hello, everyone!
One of my nail dreams has come true!  I am wearing Shah Rukh Khan nails!  Shah Rukh Khan is a hugely famous Bollywood star and my very favorite actor. These super fan nails put a smile on my face every time I look down. :)

So...this mani started with a Google search.  I was wondering whether anyone would make custom nail decals for you.  I stumbled on Fireside Gifts on Fiverr.  The seller seemed to have good feedback and the decals were only $5!  I thought I would give it a shot.

I placed an order for two sets, sent a link to a photo, and a few days later got a picture of my order before it was slipped into the mail.  How awesome is that?

They arrived with a full set of instructions as well as a link to a video how-to.  I promptly ignored the instructions (of course!) and got to work.

The quality is awesome, you get two sheets of varying sizes of decals, and they're easy to apply with a little water.

Easy, peasy and what awesome possibilities this unlocks: - babies, anniversaries, memorials, sheesh (and, of course, very attractive movie stars - haha)!

You'll have to have a white background for the decals.  I started with a white base, applied the decal,  and then polished the area around it black.  There's a bit of a "halo" here, in direct, artificial light, but you don't notice it most of the time.

This is Wet n Wild Black Creme and a dusting of the glitter Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight Glitz.  I used Essie Good as Gold for the stamping.  The plates are BM17, BM421, Konad 16 & 17, Cheeky CH51.

Of course, these nails put me in the mood for movies!

Have you considered custom decals?  What ideas do you have in mind?
