Yes , I'm back today to show you yet another Nail Art Nail post.
The Brand that I have been using for my nail art lately are fantastic in their various styles and designs and I have always used their stickers previously but this time I thought I would share with you their transfers.
Transfers to me have always been tricky , you have to soak them onto the nail and sometimes they crack or tear easily , not only that but sometimes the whole of the transfer does not actually transfer onto the nail leaving only half of the design to admire .
Charlies Nail Art Transfers are applied differently to what I have been used to which intrigued me to give them a try and I received the Santa's Sleigh Transfers .
Cost - £1
Amount - 20 transfers = 1 sheet

My thoughts on the Charlies Nail Art Transfers-
I was honestly expecting the transfers to be a lot like those children's tattoos in the respect that I would have to attach them to my nail then soak them on .
Luckily for me , they were not , I was never great at keeping still with a steady hand and I often found myself smudging them in previous attempts.
Because the design is on one side unlike usual transfers , it meant that I had no other choice but peel it away from the sheet so that when it was applied to the nail you could see the sparkle and perfect design .
I followed the instructions and then when it came to having to soak the transfer I started panicking thinking it would stick to my finger on peeling it off , or roll up and spoil , but on my first attempt at it , I found it very easy and the transfer slid of the sheet very easily with no worry at all.
I placed the transfer in my desired place on the nail and then applied a top coat to secure.
In all honesty , I expected the transfer to be very thin like , thinner than the stickers I had previously tried with them , but in fact they were slightly thicker and I do think that this is noticeable on the picture as you can see the edge of the transfer at the tip of the nail .
I think my knowing this now, will make me place the transfer closer to the tip next time so it is not so visible .
The transfers have lasted on the nail a lot longer than the sticker , I am not sure why , maybe it is because they are thicker. The design did not fade and kept its sparkle and detail for a week until I removed them from the nail with nail polish remover and it was not hard to remove either.
I absolutely love the transfers, a lot more easier than I originally thought they would be and an absolute bargain , meaning you can afford to buy a couple of different designs .
So what do you think about the transfers , will you be giving them a try?
Let me know what you think and if you decide to try any of their other designs, I would love for you to send me some pictures.
