    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.

    I’m just really too clumsy to do my nails, but I’m always looking for ideas to share with my nail artist girl, so will absolutely show this to her…

    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 😀

    Such a cute DIY tip. I may have to remember that. I am not very fond of how some of the stickers or appliques look sometimes.

    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.

    Wow, that is really cool. Can definitely save people money if they are used to going to the salon to get it done. I’d probably mess it up, though. Lol!

    Oooo – I really like that style. It looks so clean and pretty. I wish I had a nice nail length so that I could take advantage of styles like this.
