Spongebob Squarepants nails!

Every now again I'll have some nail art that really stands out. I'll remember them for months and months and they're loved on-line and offline. Unfortunately, most of these nail designs require 3+ hours of nail painting... but not these! Introducing...

Spongebob nails! I love how they look, they're so instantly recognisable and perfect! Best of all is that anyone can do them, provided you have a yellow nail polish and $2.86 US. Not bad eh? You can buy them from Born Pretty Store, I'll put all the links a bit further down.

Here's how to use them;  

1. Paint your nails yellow and wait for them to dry - I gave it about half an hour before moving on to the spongebob decals.
2. Cut out however many of the faces you want to use. I used 10 and there are 20 in the pack. 
3. Fill a bowl with luke-warm water and drop a face in. You can either take the plastic seal off before this or leave it on - I did it both ways and it didn't seem to matter. 
4. After about 10 seconds, take the face out of the water - make sure the nail you're going to place it on is wet. Put it on your nail (decal side down) and press down a little bit -same idea as temporary tattoos. Mine were a bit weird, here - the faces were reversed so I had to flip them over. Wasn't a big deal though.
5. If you've got enough water on your nails you should be able to manoeuvre them around quite easily and get them central. 
6. Use a hair dryer to dry and set them (although this isn't terribly necessary, I think).
7. Finish them off with a top coat and you're done!

Next time I use these I think I'll just put them on one finger on each hand and free-hand on some more characters and scenery from Spongebob Squarepants on the other fingers :).

You can buy these from Born Pretty Store, here! Pretty good deal for a couple of bucks, and since they have free shipping it's even better :). They have heaps of other nail art stuff too, in case you're new to them.

  1. Love them! You make me want to buy more nailart stuff right away!

  2. Oh my gosh Jessie! They're amaaaazing! I need to buy these now!

  3. I got these too, and also found that when you apply them, they're back to front! I just flipped them over and dried them. I didn't think the hair dryer was necessary either :)

    1. They're cool eh? Interesting that you had them back to front too, how did the manufacturers manage to screw that up?? Haha.
