Designer Piggies Water Decals - A Review

Hello, my lovelies :)

Today I wanna show you something that I really, really like! I'm talking about the Designer Piggies Nail Art Decals. I was contacted by Cindy, the owner of Designer Piggies, whether I'd like to review her water decals. I have some experience with water decals, since I reviewed a few for KKCenterHK and also her designs looked so freaking cool that I just had to choose one to try out :) 

Once I chose a design, they came pretty fast, considering they came all the way from the US. So that's already a big plus. Here is what you get: 

I love the packaging! I didn't took a photo before opening it, but the paper in the back with the instructions on it, is actually like a little envelope and everything was put inside it and there are little piggies in the front. It's too cute! :D
So yeah, of course you get a sheet of paper with the decals, very good instructions and 1 or 2 business cards with all the information on it about her shop, internet site and prizes. 

I took a close up photo of the nail decals - pretty cool, right? :D

I have a tutorial on how to apply water decals on my blog (here is the post) and it's basically the same thing you have to do here as well. You just have to cut them to your nail size first, apply them and file of the access after it is dry. Cindy actually has a "How to"- Video on her blog as well - check it out --here--!

It looks so amazing after you are done - like you spent the last 5 hours painting your nails, but instead it only took you about 20 minutes. I had some problems with the first decals I applied on my left hand, like filing off to much (pinkie) or just cutting them wrong (cuticle line on my middle finger). But you get the hang of it after a nail or 2 and then it goes on pretty smooth and easy.  

I was worried that the decal for my thumb would be too small, because I have pretty big thumb nails, but even that one was big enough to cover all of my nail - I was amazed :D 
Sure you're asking yourself how much this pretties lasted. A lot! I took a picture after 6 days and of course there was some visible tip wear but the design itself stayed on pretty good! You just have to make sure to use a top coat after you put them on!

So let's see what I loved about them: 

- fast shipping
- a lot of pretty and cool designs to choose from
- easy application
- nail decals fit on all nails (long/short - small/big)
... and the most important one: they're super long lasting! 

I don't really have anything to say against them, I was really amazed by them and I already want to order 2 or 3 more, just to have them here for days when I want something special on my nails and I don't have the time/motivation to do something :P 

I can really recommend them and trust me, you won't be disappointed!
