'Vicious Lips' Lip Transfers


Lynx Nails and Beauty, Pink Leopard Vicious lips (£2.45 single pack)* 

A while ago, Alex's sister Katy very kindly gave me a collection of beauty samples to experiment with and show all of my readers.  Katy is also known as 'The Beauty Princess' and is incredibly talented, having worked in the beauty industry for eighteen years.  She does all beauty treatments, from gorgeous nail art to vajazzles and is also a session tec for magazines and the celebs.  If you're in the London area or nearby, make sure you give her twitter page a follow and check her website for full contact details if you would be interested in any pampering!

Today I decided to try out the lip transfers from the collection I was given!  The transfers are from the Lynx Nails and Beauty range, and I picked the leopard print ones to play around with (I also received designs such as Union Jack print, red and black fishnet and coloured crackles).

As you can see in the first image, the lip transfers come in small sheets, and when turned over, there is a dashed line in the middle -- I used this as my guideline and cut the sheet in half, leaving enough transfer to be applied to both my upper and lower lips.  This was my first time experimenting with lip transfers so I thought I would just use this as trial and error, knowing for next time exactly how precise to be with the sizing of my cut outs.

Once I had my two separate transfers, I peeled the film off the side with the pattern, and applied each piece individually to my lips (I started with my lower one).  Upon application, I made an 'ahh' shape with my mouth to make sure that the design didn't crack.  After I had pressed the cut out to my lip, I used some wet kitchen towel and dabbed along the back of the sheet.  I made sure that the whole of the area I wanted to use was damp before peeling off and seeing the results.

When I peeled the sheet away, I realised that I had used slightly too much of the design for the size of my lip so next time I would cut the shape down more so that I don't need to peel away the excess (as you can see in the bottom photo).

I am going to be posting about the other designs I was given by Katy very soon, especially after I have had a little more practice.  Make sure you take a look at Katy's twitter and website!  Her nail designs are amazing!
