31DC2016 - Rainbow - Punched Decals

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Today the prompt is Rainbow in the 31 Day Challenge and I've used some amazing water decals in my design. I had the idea a while back to try out a paper punch on some water decals and see how it would work out. Let's take a look at my results!

For this mani, I used some full nail water decals from KBShimmer (Rainbow Drips and Swirls) for my design. These water decals are GORGEOUS and have such amazing colors! On my middle two nails, I used the full decals (over a white base). For my other nails, I started out with a base of OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, my favorite yellow creme. I then used a diamond-shaped paper punch on the water decals and applied the diamond shapes as accents over the yellow. It was so simple to do and really added some more interest to the completed look.

Here is the paper punch I used and the water decal I punched my diamonds from. You can see that the thumb decal was plenty big to get 3 diamonds punched from it. Also, I used my handy multichrome tweezers to place them (as I always do).

Be sure to check out what everyone else has done for their rainbow manis today! Thanks for looking everyone!
