Pink Tips :)

Hello again :) Hope you guys are OK?!

Today I have a reeeaaaalllllly simple nail design for you to look at. Pink Tips!!!
It started with a base coat, I used Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat, as I can suffer with quite flaky nails :( and have found this helps a bit. If you guys have any suggestions as to what else I can do/try I'd love to hear it :)

Then I painted the tips on all of my nails, except the ring finger, where I painted the whole nail. I used Barry M Bright Pink (no.279) throughout. I didn't use nail tip guides as I often find I make more mess that without them :/ however, this would be a perfect time to use them should you find them useful.

After applying two coats on every nail, I then used a nail sticker to decorate my ring finger. The application of the varnish was lovely, this is a polish I come back to again and again, and would buy more of. Not only is it cheap, the range has an awesome amount of colours and the application for all that I've tried has been great.

I did, however, MASSIVELY struggle with the sticker. It was, I admit, part of a cheap set from eBay but to me this shouldn't make a difference. Surely a nail sticker is a nail sticker, right??

Well.....I stuck it on, it lifted up. I stuck it down again, it lifted again. It did this before and after I applied the topcoat. I even used Seche Vite!! (I wanted to try this top coat out, so purchased a sample bottle, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed!!)

I'm unsure whether it's because I was using cheap stickers, or whether there was another reason. Anybody have any suggestions as to how to fix this little problem of mine??

Anyways....I hope you enjoyed :)
