I am reviewing another product from KKCenterHK. I've been lucky to review their Hello Kitty Water Decal and BlueSea Black and White Polka Dots Bow. For this post, I will review their Star Glitter Water Decal.

Product Review: KKCenterHK N.Nail White & Silver Glitter Water Decals

Where to purchase:
Price: $5.75

Description from the website:
Brand New With Original Retail Packing Box
100% Authentic
A Sheet Water Decals
Water Decals are Not Sticky!!
Thoughts: When I first saw this on the website, I was a little bit confused. The water decal looked different than how it looked on the fake, blue nails. Not that much, but you can tell the water decal on the fake nails were more defined. So when I decided to get this, I wasn't sure what to expect.
It's definitely similar to the water decal of the first picture on the website. I wish it was more defined but it's okay. I was convinced I will make it work. :)
Here's what I did with the water decal. I wore 2 coats of Zoya in Sailor on all my nails. On the ring finger, I applied 1 coat of Morgan Taylor in Fame Game (love this color!) on top of Zoya in Sailor. Then I put the water decals on the middle and ring finger. Then I finished it either with Seche Vite Top Coat (index and ring finger) or OPI Matte Top Coat (middle and pinkie finger).
Here's my nails in another angle.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all from my initial impression, I wish the stars were more defined like the ones on the fake nails on the website. I also thought there weren't that many stars. There definitely was space for more. After my initial reaction and trying it out, I was kind of mixed. It's very easy to use. You cut around the stars you want to use. Then dip it in water and push to get the water decal. Then I use a Tweezer to apply onto the nails. They usually stick onto the nails and then you top it off with top coat. For some strange reason, these water decals did not stick whatsoever. I'm not too sure why. So what I had to do is hold the water decal in place with one finger and apply top coat. It definitely was not easy and at times, it moved to a space I wasn't planning on. Once the top coat dried, the water decal was sealed and would not move. It also lasts a long time until the polish chips in that area.

* Comes in a variety of styles.
* Easy to use.
* Easy to pull the stars of the packaging.
* Easy to apply.
* Easy to apply top coat on top.
* Lasts a long time until the polish chips around the area.

* Hard to find in stores.
* Wish the shape was more defined.
* It can have more stars on the packaging.
* Did not stick on polish.

Would repurchase: Yes, for water decals. No, not for this.
