If you consider a manicure an opportunity for self-expression and your nails to be tiny canvases, then decals are probably already your jam. Because unless you’re a pro or incredibly steady of hand, the other option (hand painting the designs) can be messy, painstaking, and offers less than desirable results.
The stick-on version, on the other hand, requires no drying time or artistic abilities, making it an equal opportunity alternative to polish. Whether you prefer a little sparkle or something a bit silly, one of these options will have your nails covered.
