  4. That’s so cool! I like the splatter paint look!

  5. Really cute idea, I’ll have to try to do this when the kids have their intersession. They are getting out Nov 20 – 2nd week in January (go year round here) and all I hear is I’M BORED. They would have fun with this.

  6. WOW I had no idea it was so easy to do this yourself! a ziplock bag, different nail polish colors and a file. Brilliant

  20. JoAnna Kopp says:

    How cool! I have tried out fake nails a few times, but they feel really gross on my fingers and all kinds of dirt gets stuck underneath them, so I definitely prefer nail appliques since they are flush with the nail. Thanks for the tutorial 😀

    I’ve seen somebody doing her nails using the newspaper. And guess what, the letters from the newspaper transferred to her nails and it looks awesome. I guess that’s a good DIY idea too.
