Can a Cricut Make Nail Decals?

Nail decals have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are a great way to customize your nails and add a bit of personality and flair to your look.

Many people are now wondering if it is possible to create their own nail decals using a Cricut machine. The answer is yes, with the right materials and techniques, it is possible to use a Cricut machine to make nail decals.

Materials Needed

In order to make nail decals with a Cricut machine, you will need some specialized materials. You will need vinyl or adhesive paper that is specifically designed for use with a Cricut machine.

You will also need clear transfer tape and an ultra-fine point pen for writing designs on the vinyl or adhesive paper. Finally, you will need nail polish remover and cotton swabs for transferring the decal onto your nails.

Creating the Decal

The first step in creating your nail decal is to create the design that you want on your nails. This can be done using the pen and vinyl or adhesive paper that you purchased specifically for use with your Cricut machine. Once the design is complete, use the clear transfer tape to lift it off of the paper and place it onto your nails.

Transferring Your Design

Once your design has been placed on your nails, there are two methods that can be used to transfer them onto your nails. The first method involves using nail polish remover and cotton swabs to gently rub away at the transfer tape until all of the parts of the design have been transferred onto your nails. The second method involves using heat from an iron or hairdryer in order to adhere the parts of the design directly onto your nails.


At this point, you have successfully used a Cricut machine to make nail decals! With just a few simple materials and techniques, you can create unique designs for your nails that are sure to turn heads wherever you go!
