For doing our nails?

;)

I'm curious how they stack up with printed water transfer offered by other vendors

I haven't tried them yet , but they seem to be the cut around , soak , and don't expect a white background type we all know and love . :mrgreen:

My normal decals always end up on my fingers anyway . :lol:

That's nothing you couldn't make yourself- and FAR better!
Buy some laser safe decal paper and a few minutes with a graphics program. Get them printed on a laser printer at a FedEx or Office Depot or wherever and you won't have to spray seal them or any of that nonsense.
Just cut and apply like you would any waterslide decal.

You'll be positively shocked at how many 1:2500th scale decals you can fit on to a letter or A4 sheet of decal paper!
You'll be struggling to fill the page.

Nothing will up your game like making your own decals- particularly for Federation ships!

What is this "FedEx" or "Office depot" of which you speak ?

Not in my neck of the woods mate ;)

And it does seem a lot of faff to decal a Klingon (which has hardly any anyway) , when a measly £2.50 gets enough to do a handful (literally).

It's just a bit of fun , and I look absolutely fabulous in them Darlings . :hearteyes:

Filling the page isn't the problem I have, it's the shear number of items on the page that my computer can handle

any editing to my windows page can cause my computer to hang for a few seconds
