Catrice - Get Boho In SoHo & Water Decal Fail

Hello Sweeties!

How are you today? A while back I showed you the Mickey Mouse manicure I did for my Fianceés nieces birthday and talked a bit about what I was wanting to do originally. 
I've been meaning to wear these water decals with the gorgeous rainbow swirl and after working quite a while on getting them on something really bad happend, but let's get to that in the end. First I want to show you swatches of Get Boho In SoHo by catrice.
Get Boho In SoHo is from the Satin Matt Collection (05) and has about the same formula as Minty Memories. It is very tricky to apply and the first coat goes on extremely streaky. It easily bubbles and shows brushstrokes. For this manicure I used two coats.


But I really like this polish even though it is a little troublemaker. Especially for what I had in mind it was perfect with the unobtrusive shimmer. It gave me a wonderful background for the rainbow swirl decals. (I like that better than just a plain old white polish.)
I carefully cut the water decals out, placed them in water and on my nails one by one and once I was done with all ten nails I applied a generous amount of Seche Vite to seal it in. My left hand was done and I went on to do my right hand, when I realised, that the decals started to flow to the sides. I don't know if this was due to the hot weather or if I simply was too generous with the topcoat, but it was aweful and there was no way to save this manicure. I had to take it off immediately after working on it for quite some time. I really was angry! (Mostly with myself of course...)
Have you ever experienced something similar to this?
How do you like this colorful decal? I am so glad I snapped a picture before I applied the top coat. Otherwise I wouldn't even have been able to show you what it could have looked like.

  2. Wonderful decal. It had never happened something similar to me, maybe it was to much top coat.

    1. I really love this decal too. I do have another one so I will give this another shot eventually!
      Maybe it was the combination of too much polish and the heat. Couldn't tell...

  3. Don't be too hard on yourself, I think they came out pretty good! I sort of understand what you mean... I've had it before when it was too hot, as soon as the decal got near my nail and body heat it sort..began to melt! I agree with andrea, perhaps it was top coat around the edge of the nail? Still think they are super cute and wouldn't have known if you didn't tell us! xx

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! Maybe I'll try this again when it's getting a bit colder. The combination of a generous amount of topcoat and the heat didn't work out too well! :-D
