Nail Romance Tutorial - How to use nail transfers

Start by painting your nail in your base colour. Allow 15 minutes to dry before applying nail transfers for the best results. My nails are painted in this pink-red ombre manicure.

What you need:

How to use nail transfers:

  1. Cut the transfer to fit your nail.
  2. Use tweezers to place the transfer in water for a few seconds. If it starts to sink you’ve left it too long. You just need to dampen the backing paper.
  3. Place the transfer on your nail and let the backing paper slip away. You can reposition the transfer while it’s still damp. Then press it down to remove any air bubbles or creases.
  4. Repeat for each nail and finish with a top coat to seal the transfer in place.

These are so sweet. Far less intimidating to apply than they look. Your tutorials are so clear and lovely to look at!

What a sweet idea, I hadn’t thought of combining an ombre mani with some transfers, but I think I’m going to have to give it a try.
