Decals with Crafts Shaped Hole Punchers

So I was routing around in my paper crafts box and came across a heart shaped hole puncher that I didn't even know I had, and moved it to the tools shelf on my nail bar! Then I spotted the perfect polish to try it with, promptly removed it from the tool shelf on said nail bar because I had to use it immediately!

I'm really happy with how it turned out and love the polish I used! 

The punched hearts were quite large so I was limited in how I could place them on the nail, but I managed to squeeze them on quite nicely in the end. To do the hearts I painted a layer of polish on a freezer bag, and once it was dry I peeled it off and punched the shapes out of it. I did the accent nail by trimming a piece to fit my nail from the layer that had all the other hearts punched out of it. For the base I used my usual white, Sinful Colours ''Snow me White'' and the hearts were made from this gorgeous jelly polish you can see in the bottle there, Sinful Colours ''Nail Junkie''. I absolutely LOVE this polish and with a name like that I just had to have it!

I tried to get a close up shot of the bottle content, it's a beautiful greeny blue jelly packed with blue, teal and green glitters, it's really quite stunning! I confess I have a bit of a thng for blue polishes, without even realising it I have collected many more blue polishes than any other colour! I have another couple of stunners from the Sinful Colours collection that I need to use too! Hmmmmmmmmm!

Stay tuned for tomorrow as I have a special mani inspired by the most AMAZING art installation I have seen! 


  1. very pretty! I love the craft hole puncher idea, I'm so off to Hobby craft at the weekend :)

  2. Wow these came out so cute! I love the use of a punch to give you that adorable heart shape. Is that Sinful white a new one? I have been having THE worst time trying to find a white that goes one well.

    1. I don't know if it's a new one I just know that I love it, it's really opaque and looks perfect in 2 coats, and it's good for stamping. It's the only proper white polish I use now!

  3. the negative punch is truly an artful detail, looks perfect ☼
