H & M ~ 501 – with self made decals



H & M ~ 501 – with self made decals
Silver holo

I got an Überchic Stamping mat for Christmas from my sweet friend Carolyn. That felt like a real treat!

Today I’ll show you one of my attempts of making decals.

Let me start by showing you how it all ended out looking:



I know it is far from perfect, but bear with me!
The stamp would only come off the stamper if I applied a layer of topcoat on the mat, so that’s what I did. The stamp came from a plate from Dashida: Infinity Nails-163. I filled in the pattern with Picture Polish’s Arabian and P2’s “Be My Guy” and #501 from H&M. I applied a layer of topcoat on all of that and then I let it dry.

I cut the decals out in bits I thought made sense: Half a circle on two nails and a triangular bit on two nails. I topped the whole thing with an extra layer of topcoat – that makes three layers in total!


This is what H&M’s number 501 looks like on its own. It’s quite a nice silver holo in my opinion, nice to work with. The brush is relatively wide, but I don’t mind that. This is two coats.


Here are the three polishes I used.


I definitely have to work on my decals. It is so much fun and there are so many possibilities! Have you tried making your own decals yet?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Holo
Overall impression: Nice silver holo, good basic polish
Buy again: Yes
