I discovered that April 10th is National Sibling Day and I thought this would be a great time to try something different. So what did I try…I honored my siblings by putting their picture on my nails.


Here's what I used:

  • Base coat: Naked Base by Zoya 
  • Base color: Leia by Zoya 
  • Top coat: Armor top coat by Zoya 
  • For pics: Avery shipping labels (5661)
  • Color printer
  • Sharp scissors 
  • Tweezers

Before getting started you need to print the pics onto the labels.  I recommend doing test prints in black and white on regular paper to get the sizing right.  It took me about 3 tries.  Once you've got the sizing right, print the pics onto the mailing labels. and get started.

Here's my Sibling Day Mani



Here's what I did:

  • Cut the pics out
  • Prep my nails with +Zoya Nail Polish remover
  • Apply base coat - Naked Base by Zoya
  • Apply 2 coats of polish - Leia by Zoya
  • Apply top coat - Armor by Zoya
  • Using tweezers apply pictures to the nail (it's best to apply while top coat is still wet, to prevent any gaps that will allow moisture to get underneath the picture causing it to lift)
  • Gently press decal to ensure it adheres, especially the edges
  • Allow to dry
  • Apply another layer of top coat to seal it (be careful not to go over one spot multiple times, it will smear the ink)
  • Again, allow to dry.
