Good evening! Tonight I bring you Emily de Molly The Devil’s Advocate and some DIY nail decals I made using my UberChic Beauty Uber Mat. I’m sorry I didn’t take any photos of the mat in action but I will soon! In the meantime, enjoy this amazing Emily de Molly polish (and my decals!).

The Devil’s Advocate is – yes, it is! – a bright red linear holo with a beautiful gold flame. For some reason I just couldn’t get this to its true red in my photos. It kept looking like pink. So while the holo effect is there, the actual colour of this polish is best shown in my photos of the DIY nail decals. I think I couldn’t get an accurate red colour because on the day I took the photos of The Devil’s Advocate, the sun was pretty strong and it brought out the pink highlights of the polish too much. Anywho, what you see is two easy coats and a top coat of Seche. This was a lovely polish to wear, be you a red or a pink fan!

Now, on to my DIY nail decals! I’ve never made decals before so please be nice. I used Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L002 and stamped onto clear coats of polish on the Uber Mat. Then I filled in the designs using a bunch of ulta3 polishes, but I forget their names now. Then, after the decals were dry, I lifted the decals off the Uber Mat and onto my nails, sealing with a coat of Seche. It was really, really painless and I can’t wait to make more!

So, what do you think of my decals? I’ve read a few articles now about making batches in advance and then using them as you need, which I think is a great idea. What do you think? Thanks for reading!
