We have just a little more than 1 month left of Spring and I for one have been enjoying the beautiful flowers that are blooming in all of their gorgeous colours .
So much so that my husband has decided that he is eventually going to to design our new garden into somewhere that suits us all which even includes a full garden border for the children and I to enjoy a spot of gardening ourselves.
If it was up to him he would have the whole thing paved , we have not been very green fingered so to speak in our previous homes but seen as though we are most certainly not moving any more I am rather excited to have the perfect garden for our family. flowers included.
I have never been great at drawing so adapting those pretty flowers onto my nails would look rather messy so instead I opted for a nail wrap.
The last time I tried the nail wraps they looked gorgeous but this time I found that Charliesnailart.co.uk had a different style but which is applied the same .
Still as affordable as all of their products, these wraps only cost 89p and come in various colours , for me the pretty pale blues I think will be a huge hit this summer .
This is the application process for these particular Decal Wraps-
I have to admit that with this XF style nail wrap , it was a lot harder than the C style nail wrap which were already shaped at one end making it fit easier to the cuticle of the nail unlike these .
I found once adding them straight onto the nail that if I left them to dry to the nail , it then made it easier to trim around the edges but the cuticle area was still my struggle.
If you are great at guessing the shape and size of your nail which I am not then this would be an easy process for you but I had a little struggle at first and for this reason would prefer to use the C style .
The whole process only took 20 minutes which is not bad at all .
The colours stayed bright and cheerful and the Top coat of polish ensured it stayed on the nail for a good 3 to 4 days depending on your day to day doings.
What do you think about the final results?

Those nail wraps really do look the part for summer.
Great pattern on them, but can see shaping the bottom end would be hard indeed! I use the c shape ones occasionally (actually might put a set on today) as I always manage to pick up the Myleen Klass ones cheap at one of the local discount stores, so have a massive stack in my drawer, but most the time I just stuck to paint! <a href="http://twoheartsoneroof.com" rel=“nofollow"> Two Hearts One Roof</a>

These look great! They remind me of tie dye patterns :)

I can't say it feels much like spring today! These would certainly brighten up a dull and dreary day.

They look really pretty. I always thought these would take ages to do but only 20 minutes seems really good!

Your nails look great! I am not sure I could put these on myself so professionally but love the pattern x

They are very pretty - I should really give nail stickers a try sometime.

I love the design but it does look really fiddly!

I've tried nail wraps a couple of times and failed miserably, although these are very pretty :)

They look lovely! I wonder if you could somehow trace the shape of your nail using paper, to give you a template to work from?

These are so pretty - I love the idea of brightening up nails, I need to grow mine a bit more!
