tried something new today and i think it worked out really well!
after the polish was completely dry i applied a temporary tattoo to each nail. i had purchased this printable tattoo paper for my friends circus wedding – my original idea was to be the tattooed lady. i ended up being their fortune teller and my mom went as the snake charmer. i had printed this snake skin for her nails but we ran out of time.
here’s a close up of the tattoo applied to the nail. the hard thing about this paper is that once it’s applied it’s like a sticker – not like a traditional temporary tattoo that you buy in vending machines or whatever. it’s still like a piece of paper. so once i got to this point i had to take an exacto knife and cut off the paper that was outside my nail. tedious to say the least.
