Apply Stickers on Gel or Acrylic Nails

Edited by Kara, Jen M, Dougie, Doug Collins and 2 others

Hi, you are watching VisiHow. My name is Kara and in this video I will show you how to apply stickers on your fingernails. It's actually a flower design, a little clear sticker that will go on your nails. For that, I will need a nail polish to go on as a base, and I chose this pinkish reddish color. It is glossy, not matte, not shiny, just a glossy nail polish.

Steps

  1. 1
    You can use any color you want that will match or to contrast with your stickers.
    So I want some bright colors for me. I will go for 2 layers as usual because one layer of nail polish never gives you full coverage and deep color. Also, this nail polish dries quite fast, that is why I chose it.

    OK and the thumb.

    Let's wait for it to dry off just a tiny bit and then we will go to the second layer.
    As you can see, the stickers are of different designs and different shapes and different layouts of the flowers. So what I will try to do is play around with it.

    While my nails are drying off.
    Let's open the pack. These are not the most expensive stickers in the world, but if you did it the right way, them being cheap is not a big issue. We can make them look more expensive.

    If I was to use, for example, white nail polish or semi white nail polish, these kinds of nail flowers would not be seen or noticeable, it would look like a big mess.
    Also pay attention to the color of the background. These stickers are attached to a black paper. That is a step that the producers went to make them more noticeable so that they would be sold better. So if you get stickers that go on a lighter paper, you probably should be using a lighter nail polish as well. I could have chosen a dark blue or black as well, but I wanted something bright.

    The cuticle remover is a very multi-functional thing, if you mess up a tiny bit you can just remove the wet nail polish.

    So let's wait until it dries.
    Make sure you keep your nail polish always closed. Otherwise, it will dry off fast before you get to the middle of the bottle it will be all dry. So keep it closed and it has to be closed very tight.

    Lets see if they are dry enough.
    They are still a little sticky, but I think that we can start.

    So, the reason I needed the cuticle remover, I do not want to dig in my freshly painted fingernails.
    So this is what I am going to do. It will help to pick up the end of the sticker with the cuticle remover.

    And I pick this up and put it right here, and you have to push it against the nail.

    If you can see there is some air under the clear parts, so you can use a toothpick or just anything else that has a thin edge to apply the sticker all the way.
    If there are any missed spots, especially on the edges it might come off, it probably will not serve you a long time if it is not attached all the way.

    I do not have to put them all together.
    I can put it in this corner. Again, make sure there is not, air left under the sticker.

    Let's put it into the center.
    You don't have to keep your nails all the same, like soldiers. You have a freedom to create, so the important part is keeping them in the same color and the same style.

  23. 23
    I would like to do something like this here.
    Now if you use your fingers to apply the stickers and your nail polish has not dried all the way, you may leave some pretty obvious fingerprints and you don't want that. So be very careful when you do this kind of thing.
