I was recently contacted by Cathy, the creator of ViNailicious, to see if I'd be interested in reviewing some of her Nail Vinyls. Of course I was happy to :)
Cathy recently created her own nail vinyls with the help of her husband because she wasn't satisfied with the designs that were available. And I have to admit that they did a fantastic job with the designs!

So now that you've seen all of the stencils I received...Let's get into the Nail Designs!
I created this design with the Stained Flowers Vinyl. I loved this design so much! I had a hard time taking it off ;P The colors I used were Royal Polish Robins Egg, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and ShopLVX New Spring polish Azure.
This was a total experiment that I wasn't quite sure about until I put a topcoat over it :) Then I loved the finished look! The colors I used were Sinful Colors Snow Me White & Tempest and China Glaze Def Defying, For Audrey & Shocking Pink.
And last up, is this fun swirl pattern. I played around with this design for 2 days because it didn't feel quite done when I first finished it. I started off with just Sinful Colors Snow Me White and OPI Black Onyx, then decided that it was missing something so I added China Glaze Fairy Dust over top of the black swirls...and then it still didn't feel quite right, so I added a matte topcoat!
I loved all of the vinyls I tried...and obviously I still have more to try :)
I think that Cathy and her husband did a great job with the designs! I was really impressed with the variety of vinyls they created! The only thing that I had a problem with is that some of the images have very fine lines so if you're not careful peeling them off of the paper backing, they can rip easily. But once you get used to working with them, they're pretty easy to use.
(Tips: They're delicate so be gentle when you use them, place them on the back of your hand before you place them on your nail so they're not as sticky and whenever possible apply polish over the top with a makeup sponge, the lines will come out cleaner and it won't be as messy).
