Nail Nerd » Creating Your Own Nail Transfers. Necessity is truly the mother of invention, and this one was a long time stewin’.
I’ve been trying to figure out for months how I could create patterns and manicures for people without, you know, having to spend all of that quality time with somebody’s hand in my lap (I’ll admit to being super pokey with some designs and can literally waste away 4+ hours working on something… who wants to sit through that?!). The baggie transfer from the dry water marble nails *would* have been a cool way to do it, but — if you’ve ever tried this you probably know — peeling the nail polish off of the plastic is actually pretty difficult, and all the tender tugging can often warp or rip the polish, which obviously doesn’t do well for really precise designs (i.e. with lines). Last week while dinking around in the kitchen I thought to pull out all of the various papers and foils at my disposal to do a little spot test: put down a couple of layers of polish and see how it pulls up. No sticking. Nada. Nails.

Today I decided to finally to post about the subject I get most questions about: How I paint my nails. I know a lot of you would love to see a video, but unfortunately my camera is only capable of producing the crappiest, pixelated movies ever. Add my camera-shyness in the mix and it's just a recipe for failure. Instead of making a fool out of myself on camera, I drew some pictures last week to explain my way of painting my nails. I also know a lot of you already paint your nails perfectly, so this one goes out for everyone that just doesn't know where to begin. Go to the bathroom first - not kidding on this one ;-)Make sure you have decent lighting Gather all the stuff you need and place it in front of youRest your hands on a table or desk to remain steadyIf you're not that good at painting your non-dominant hand, start with painting your dominant hand first. Done, but everything is still a bit messy?
Thanks so much for reading and till next time, - Michèle.
