How to make Herdy Christmas nail art

Step 1: Print the Herdy Freebie nail art designs onto the decal paper using an inkjet printer. Allow the print to dry thoroughly.

Step 2: Spray the printed decals with three coats of clear coat spray, allowing fifteen minutes between each coat. Then allow to dry for at least an hour, preferably 2–3 hours.

Step 3: Cut out your favourite Herdy decals as close to the character shape as possible or, if using the patterned nail decal, to the shape of your nail.

Step 4: Paint your nails with white nail polish.

Step 5: Place the cut out decals in water for around fifteen seconds, paper side down, then remove from the water and slide the transparent decal off the paper.

Step 6: Using tweezers, place the decal on your nail and adjust the positioning to fit. Gently dry off the excess moisture with a cotton bud.

Step 7: Once the decal is thoroughly dry, finish with a layer of top coat.

Step 8: Repeat for the rest of your nails! Nailed it.
