Funky make-your-own nail art stickers!

Hello beauties!

There are so many options on the market when we buy nail art stickers. More to choose from than you can believe. But have you ever stood there, looking at the designs, and thought there is nothing here I like? And since most of us want quick and simple nail art, the stickers are the simplest answer. I mean, what is easier than sticking it on and painting a top coat?

I was browsing YouTube the other day, and came across this recommended video, which shows you step by step, how to make your own nail art designs, and simply 'stick' them on. I thought it was brilliant, and I had to share! The video is in French, but it has subtitles, and you can see what she is doing even without having to read the instructions. Here is the video.

For those of you who can't watch the video for whatever reason, she is basically painting a thick layer of clear nail polish onto a plastic document sleeve (you know, the ones you use in files). She lets it dry, and then paints her design onto it using nail polish or acrylics, and lets that dry. Then she removes the design from the sleeve, places it on her nail, and paints clear nail varnish over. Incredible huh?

Stay beautiful everyone!
