For those that asked...
Rub-on stickers, they're not just for crafting. They make an excellent alternative to nail stickers/decals. I actually prefer them to what's available specifically for nails. Rub-ons are cheap, easy to work with and have better staying power than nail stickers, which are notorious for lifting after applying a top coat. Another great thing about rub-ons....there are so many to choose from!
Rub-ons are mounted on clear plastic cards and are packed with a stick resistant, glossy/waxy protection card. It's important to keep the backing card behind the images, especially when cutting, or you run the risk of your image sticking to things you wish it hadn't. The popsicle stick you see is included with rub-ons to help with transfering/rubbing, however, you won't need it to get the image on your nails.
I use tweezers to hold the image,( slide the backing away), and place the image on my nail. To avoid wrinkles and broken lines/images, it's really important to keep it stationary. If the rub-ons you chose are gel like, the transfer will be almost instantaneous the second it touches your nail. Some rub-ons are paperish or a little stiffer, such as the silver snowflakes I used on my last mani, and will require some rubbing. I just use a fingernail to gently scratch over the image.
