Topic: Nail Art
I don't know if this is a new idea for you but it sure was for me.
I had a wild thought the other day when contemplating what to put on my nails next. I wanted some kind of artwork look and decided to see if I had any tissue paper in the studio that had small motifs on it.
Sure enough I found this piece:
I had the idea to try a tissue wrap on my nails much like the ones I used recently on the Tim-tags.
So, I started out by cutting out small purple flowers and then I cut slits into the paper all around right up to the flowers (this was so the tissue would mold to the shape of the nail.
I used clear base coat and two coats of white polish on each nail. When they were completely dry I worked one-by-one. I applied a coat of clear topcoat, placed and burnished a tissue and trimmed around all the edges and tip wiith small scissors.
Then I put a small dot of gold glitter on the yellow flower centers.
After all was dry I filed the edged smooth and then used two coats of topcoat to seal them.
They ended up looking like painted porcelain and I love them.
I have no idea how long something like this will last. It's all an experiment at this point.
Also, this was a LOT of work, so I probably won't do it again.
