You guys I LOVE this mani! I was so sad when I had to take it off, and I'm seriously considering ordering another pack of these decals so that I can recreate this and wear it again for a longer period of time. Hmmmm! Check out more pics under the cut and let me know if you're also on Team Redo-This-Mani! :)

The sheet of decals I took this from has a variety of emoji faces in a few different sizes. They're each opaque on a clear background which is great because you don't have to worry about having to cut them close and you also don't have to worry about needing a white background to make them pop. 

You can find this exact design here and for any order you make you can also use the code Ka2016 (put it in the order note) and they will include a little gift worth between $3-$5 with your order. :)

I started with a gradient on each of my nails over a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. The gradient colors (from pointer to pinky) are: CND Vinylux Desert Poppy, CND Vinylux Honey Darlin', Ceramic Glaze Surf's Up and OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay. I then cut, soaked and applied my decals of all sizes all over my nails!

Look at that grumpy little grump of a man! He's happy on the inside that I placed him over a contrasting gradient, though!

And this little guy loves his matching yellow gradient!

I adore how the colours of all the different emoji pop off of the gradient colours I chose, and I had zero issues with decal application! Seriously guys I can't get enough of these! Ahhhh!!! I honestly thought when I first saw the decals that there was no way they could look good because emoji are usually just so cheesy, but I was so pleasantly surprised. :)

Would you rock these emoji on your nails? Or are these a NO-moji for you? Hahah. 

Thanks for visiting!! xx
