Hey all! To get in the BotCon spirit, I decided to have Autobot and Decepticon nails done for the show. I am by no means a nail expert or artist, but being a woman, I love getting my nails done. So I started thinking, how many other female fans have done this and how can I do this? Then, I started searching YouTube for videos and different fan sites and blogs to see if I can find some examples. There were a few, but they looked way to difficult for a nail novice like myself to attempt. I am always impressed with girls who can do their own hair, nails and makeup like professionals! People have some beautiful work out there and have the talent to do this. I was amazed at how intricate some of the designs and insignias were!
Nail decals and jewels are pretty popular now and since I do not have the skill or talent to paint an Autobot insignia on my nails, I decided to order some decals. As a result, I searched Ebay for ready-made decals. First attempt at this time, zilch! However, I did come across a seller who designed decals and could easily make them from any photo. I definitely wanted Autobot and Decepticon insignias, thus I chose some pictures that she could work from. I was very pleased with the results! Most nails actually look like thick stickers, but these are high quality. They are very thin, easy to apply, and aren’t too obvious that they’re stickers.
Here are the end results:
If anyone is interested in purchasing some, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you the seller’s info and link to her Ebay store.
