Combining two of my favourite things – nail art and dogs with these Hello Harriet dog nail transfers…
One thing I love doing is painting my nails – I used to spend hours doing really intricate designs, but unfortunately I don’t have as much time to do that anymore. Since finding out I’m pregnant, I’ve also been a bit anxious about using nail varnish too much as the fumes aren’t great, but after a bit of research, I’ve found that so long as the nail varnish doesn’t contain dibutyl phthalate, and you don’t do them too often, it’s okay.
Another thing I love, is my dog, Freddie the Frenchie, and when my lovely friend Hannah (AKA utensils0) sent me a link with some adorable dog nail transfers from Hello Harriet that included a French bulldog image, I had to try them out.
One of my favourite nail varnishes is my Formula X in ‘Thrilling’ polish and it doesn’t contain dibutyl phthalate – yay! I used this as the base colour as I wanted a light, neutral colour to show the dogs off.
I applied two coats, and once it had dried, I opened my nail transfers.
They were incredibly easy to use. Cut round the design you want – cut as close to the illustration as possible so you aren’t left with too much clear residue.
Peel off the clear top layer and stick the design on your nail, then wet the back with water and leave for around 20 seconds, then peel off, and ta-da!
Apply at least one coat of clear topcoat – it evens it all out and will keep the transfer on.
I absolutely love these – they’re really cute, super easy to use and hopefully they’ll last for a few days!
