American Made Creations: Vinyl Stickers for Everything!! (Including Nails, Of Course!)

American Made Creations is a business started (in California/Florida) by my friend, Shanel, and her fiance, Scott. AMC makes vinyls for home, car, nails, and more. They are also growing as I type this and getting into custom made shirts, tote bags, and other items!

You may already know Shanel from her polish page, Tattooed Nail Girl. And you may have heard of Scott from his other business, Stellar Graphics. (<--If you need a logo for your blog or business, check him out).

I wanted to support Shanel and Scott in their latest endeavor so I asked Shanel for two identical custom stickers: A Texas outline with my initials (LC) separate so I could place them over the spot I lived in, DFW.

I worked with Shanel over FB to get the exact details of what I wanted. She was very patient and sent me designs to look at before moving forward. I ordered one car sized and one to fit my planner. I love how they turned out!

(Spoiler alert: Shanel sent me an awesome package with my stickers and some items for review, including nail stickers! She sent some Shiba Inu shaped items. My dog, my bff Shelby, is a Shiba, so although I love the Texas stickers, my Shelby stickers are the ones that got applied first!!)

Check it out!

I know you're here for all things nail related, so here are my nail vinyls:

Do you see the Shiba Inu shaped decals!??! Woo!!!

Below on my middle finger I used the larger peace signs and on my ring and index, the smaller sized decals. They are good quality and didn't rip or stretch when I took them off the backing. I did use tweezers for easy application. The colors are vibrant and they wore until I took them off.

In case you're wondering, the white polish is Zoya Genesis.

Next, I used one Shelby decal...I mean, Shiba Inu decal...over OPI Hey Baby. I love the subtle tone on tone look! These decals are the same great quality. No pulling or peeling or stretching, even with the tiny feet.

Onto the bigger vinyls!

I was SO excited to see this!!! Shanel knows I love pink so this is just perfect.

Here is how to apply!  Shanel sent great instructions with the vinyls but it is always nice to see it in action, too.

First, peel off backing and stick to clean surface. I used a spare towel to smooth it down and keep the bubbles at bay.

Start to peel off the front protective layer. Go slow and it comes off easily.

Because of the e and the y, there were pieces I had to stick in to form the letters. I used tweezers to easily grab them off the backing and accurately place them in the text.

PS: Obviously the sunlight is playing tricks with the washed out color. The sticker is an eye catching and vibrant pink as you saw in the closer pics.

I saved the best for last!

HOLOGRAM ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!

I may have squee'd when I saw this!! Shanel sent me a hologram Shelby, perfectly sized for my planner (or car, but I carry my planner 24-7 so this was the spot where I can enjoy it most). Application is the same for this as the car vinyl. LOVE!!!!!!

Clearly, from the 10,000 exclamation points in this blog post, I was 110% thrilled with my stickers! I am trying to think of something cool to have AMC make for me next.  I def encourage you to check out and support this new small business.
