hi-i-am-a-weirdo asked: hello I love nail art and I have a lot of nail polish and this blog is so good, you're awesome and my question is... how did you made the ring finger with the symbol of Gentlemen of the road? ( I LOOOVEE mumford too) :D
Hi ❤ I’m glad you like it! Actually what I was originally going to do was the rubbing alcohol transfer thing for newspaper nails (you can youtube it) but then it didn’t work as well as I hoped, so I had to improvise and it ended up working well.
What I did was… I printed out a picture on regular paper, then I cut out the figure leaving a small white border around it. I painted my nails a light color and let them dry completely, then I sponged a bit of polish remover onto them and pressed the picture on face down and patted it down until secure. Then I took rubbing alcohol or water on a swab and soaked the paper on my nail and began to peel away at the back of the paper, leaving a thin see through piece of paper with the ink from the image left behind. I then painted over it with a top coat to make the left over white milky border from the paper disappear into the polish, and voila!
Hope this sorta helps.. It sounds complicated but it’s actually so great once you get the hang of it. I may do a tutorial or picture series of how to do this one day :) Thanks for the question and your support! Xx
