DIY Nail Art Stickers Tutorial

Hi guys :3
Since my face is swollen, I decided to make a nail post. :)
I was watching 3TanjaJ3's youtube channel and wanted to try out the "nail art stickers" you can make yourself ;)


Supplies you will need:
- Plastic sheet (can be cellophane-type plastic)
- Nail Polish
- Toothpick, brush, etc (anything you are going to use to draw/paint your desired design)
- Clear varnish/top coat


Here, I just had a small random plastic sheet I got from some packaging...
I also thought it might a good idea to trace the hello kitty and badz-maru designs onto the plastic sheet since its transparent ;)


Take your colored nail polishes and start tracing, filling in, painting, or drawing any design you would like to stick onto your nails with a toothpick (or any other tool of your choice)...
Here's my poor attempt (and first attempt!!!) to try the hello kitty design...
I'm sure you get the point though...


Here's how mine turned out so far HAHAHHAHAHA!!!!! I think it was hard because the design was really tiny and my toothpick was a bit too thick.. maybe I'll use another tool to do this next time. Hopefully the next one I do will turn out much better...


After you've painted your design on the plastic sheet using your nail polish, carefully brush a layer of clear varnish on your design...
Here's my varnish on my badz-maru design :P
I also went ahead and made some simple flower shapes just to try out...




Wait for your designs to dry completely...  peel it off the plastic sheet and place on your nail:


Flatten your "nail sticker" on your nails and seal with top coat/ clear nail varnish! :)


Base nail color: I'm wearing "Mauve It" by Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color.

Kay, I think this method of making nail stickers is ingenious! :P hehe I would have never thought to try that... I only try drawing things directly on to my nails, which doesn't always end up so great. I'm glad you like my squirrel pics! I went absolutely cuckoo because I love squirrels :D oo you should visit your sister when she moves to BC and check out the beautiful nature-y sites!
