This was a totally experimental design I tried before doing my St Patties Day Nails.
I tried using the newsprint technique for larger damask cut-outs and it was a nightmare getting them to line up/press all over the natural nail. I get the idea it works so great with newsprint because its uh, *cough* NEWSPRINT. Aka thin and inky. Next time I’m bumping my ink output way up and using a 15lb/gm^2 paper. And I learned that sexy thin pens aren’t that great for drawing designs over transferred ink.
So here’s the glitter + pen vomit :]
Note my inability to do tips. This has been a reoccurring issue. >:[
I don’t mind the way the pinky looks, but I was not willing to put the effort in to redo all of them like that… and THEN do my right hand!? Nah, not enough gain for all that pain.
Apologies at the dirty and sore state of those cuticles, uploading my old pictures is teaching me a lot about what I should be more careful about.
So, putting glitter over newsprint looks kinda cool, I assume with a less complex design it would look better and be easier, but until I make that attempt I’ll hold my tongue lol
The base coat is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure #430 “Grass Slipper.” One of my favorite colors ever, super opaque and smooth and gorgeous after one application. No visible brush strokes either :] blah blah blah the end!
