Alkaline Trio Polka Dot Nails

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with some transfers I made to celebrate going to see my favourite band, Alkaline Trio. I actually ran into Matt and Derek from trio before the gig and Matt took a photo and posted on his instagram  Matt Skiba's instagram.
I used my serif software to shrink a heartskull and printed onto plain paper first to check scale as the transfer paper is expensive! I used water slide decal paper in white (as the printer doesnt print white and you obviously need it for the centre of the heartskull) I printed then used varnish to set them over 24 hours. Then you can just use them like normal transfers.
I painted my nails red, then used a coat of top coat to give a surface to stick the transfers to. Next I did my polka dots with white nail varnish pen and then put a final top coat on. All done :-)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone :-)
