Zoya Caitlin and MASH Dried Flower Decals

Zoya Caitlin

Caitlin is a grey creme that can look purple or bluish depending on the light and takes 2 coats to become opaque. (The application on my middle finger was a fluke... I blame my non-dominant hand.) It had a smooth, easy-to-control formula and levels well. It dries with a nice gloss and dry time. I had this on for almost a whole week and there was little chipping and tip wear. I have come to expect great quality from Zoya. I can't wait to try out my other Zoyas! :D

After a few days of wearing just Caitlin, I got a bit bored of her. I also haven't worn anything pink on my nails in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (which is this month) yet. I received my MASH dried flower decals from Amazon and decided to try them out. I found that they were quite delicate and could easily be torn apart if not handled carefully. But when applying one onto the nail, the flower was much stiffer (but not too stiff that you can't mold it to your nail) than I thought it would be. I used an orange stick and a little bit of clear polish to pick up the flower and apply it on my nail. It wasn't too hard, thankfully! I used two coats of Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat and the flower stayed until I took off my mani. When I removed it with diluted acetone, the flower sort of "melted" off onto the cotton ball. I feel like it was a bit overpriced ($5.97, sold by MASH Nails and fulfilled by Amazon), but I didn't know of any other way of getting them. :( I say give dried flower decals a try! They're pretty and really fun! :D

The other colors that MASH offered. The container was easy to open. Be careful that you don't lose any flower decals!

A close-up to see the details on the flowers.

What do you guys think of flower decals? Willing to try them?

P.S. School has not been very forgiving. 3 straight weeks of midterms so far. I'm losing sleep and missing meals in an attempt to get more studying time. Not good! Keep expecting erratic posts.

See you guys on the other side of the day!
