Nail art with traditional Chinese Peach water decals and scaled gradient background "Oriental beauties"


Good day darlings, what are you doing if you failed at scaled gradient? Right, cover it up with water decals. That's exactly how this nail art appeared, so it's not a complete failure and I use it as my entry for Russian challenge with water decals. I even like how two gorgeous flakies Heart's desire and Gilded grove complement these decals (check out macros at the end), but making scaled gradient with flakies was not a good idea. These water decals look really nice on the nails and were easy to apply, however they have low resolution, which is really visible on close up macro pictures, and is a bit annoying. Do you use water decals, what are your favorite once?
