How To Create Halloween Nails Easily
There are multiple ways to create Halloween nails. However, the best way still remains nail decal stickers. Nail stickers are a great way to show off your holiday spirit without having to spend hours using nail polish to design intricate designs. If you’re not a nail artist, you’ll definitely adore nail stickers because they are easy to apply and don’t require special skills.
How To Apply Nail Decal Stickers
Below, we provide a step-by-step guide on how to apply decal stickers.
Prep Your Nails
Before you can paint your nails, you must first clean them. This entails removing any oils or debris from the nails. You can get this done by washing your hands with soap and water, then using a nail brush to remove any residue. After that, carefully shape your nails with a nail file. Finally, use a nail buffer to buff your nails and create a smooth surface for the color to adhere to.
Start Applying The Stickers
Now that your nails are prepped, you can start applying the stickers. You can apply the stickers on bare nails but it’s best to put them on over a layer of gel polish or a set of solid semi-cured gel nails to ensure that the surface is smooth. To apply decals, begin by peeling off the backing of the sticker and gently placing it on your nail. Use a tweezer if needed. The thinner the sticker is, the better it will look on your nails for a smooth finish. Be careful when removing them from their packaging because they can easily break.
Once you’ve positioned the sticker, use GellyDrops Press Light’s jelly top to smooth out the decal stickers equally on your nails. Make sure any bubbles or wrinkles are smoothed out.
Finish Off With A Top Coat
Once you’re happy with your nails, use a top coat to seal in the design and make it last longer. And that’s it!
How To Remove Decal Stickers
If you want to remove your decal stickers, start by soaking a cotton ball in acetone. Once it’s soaked, press it onto your nail for a few seconds and then gently peel the sticker off. If there is any residue left behind, use a nail brush to gently scrub it away. Wash your hands with soap and water to remove the acetone.

6 Easy Tips To Make Your Stickers Last Longer
Now that you know how to apply and remove decal stickers, here are a few tips to make them last longer:
1. Store The Stickers In A Cool, Dry Place
UV light, heat, and moisture can all cause the stickers to deteriorate over time. To prevent this, make sure to store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. An airtight container would be ideal.
2. Avoid Exposing The Stickers To Chemicals
Certain chemicals can cause the stickers to fade, peel, or crack. To avoid this, make sure to keep them away from household cleaners, perfumes, and lotions.
3. Don’t Bend Or Fold The Stickers
Folding or bending the stickers can cause them to lose their stickiness or tear. To avoid this, handle them with care and try not to bend or fold them unnecessarily.
4. Use A Top Coat To Make The Stickers Last Longer
Applying a top coat of clear polish can help prolong the life of your stickers by protecting them from nicks and scratches.
5. Practice Proper Nail Hygiene
To ensure that your nails are free of any oil or dirt, it is critical to practice good nail hygiene. This will aid the stickers in sticking better to your nails and preventing them from peeling off too soon.
6. Don’t Forget To Seal The Edges
To keep the stickers from peeling at the edges, it is important to seal them with a top coat or clear polish. This will give them an extra layer of protection and make them last longer.
