It looks like I need to paint thinner layers with some, but I'm quite pleased with my first attempt Smile

That's odd, I thought I posted a reply a while ago, but it doesn't seem to have worked confused

Anyhoo, the way I did it was I got a sheet of backing paper from a sticker and painted a thin layer of clear polish onto it.
When it was dry I stamped my designs on it (used Konad Black). Then when that dried I used a dotting tool and polish to colour in the designs. You don't need to be too neat here.
Again, it was more waiting around to dry then another thin layer of clear over it.
It was then ready. After painting a base colour on the practice nail I then used a small slanted orange stick to slide the decal off the backing paper and used nail scissors to trim off as much excess as possible.
After applying top coat to the nail, stick the decal on and use the orange stick to move the decal into place and smooth it out.

I'm not good at giving out instructions so hope that helped. Next time I make some I'll try and take pictures as I go along.

I've done similar to this.

I used a plastic wallet, the ones you put papers in, in a folder.
Pain clear polish on then let it dry.
Stamp or draw design on with nail pens.
Top coat it.
Once dry, it should just lift off the plastic wallet, if needed either use a cocktail stick to raise the edge slightly or bend the plastic wallet and that should lift the edge also.
Then paint nails and leave them till they are still a little tacky, not fully dry.
Place image onto nails, then topcoat again.

The great thing with this is you can reuse the plastic wallet over again. I put each hand under the plastic wallet and drew round my nails, so I have a guide as to what size each design needs to be to neatly fit my nails.

Hope my description makes sense.
