Long Lasting Nails the Quicker Way

Okay this is a real cheat for a post! But it is the only art I did this week other than wrapping gifts and I wouldn’t exactly call those a work of art either. :D

The week after Thanksgiving Lauren introduced me to the joys of nail stickers. She did them for me showing me how to do them.

They lasted for about two weeks. I just peeled them off last Saturday because I had scratched some of them pretty badly near the end. On one day I bent back one of my nails and I was pretty sure it broke. However, thanks to the nail sticker, it stayed together. When I peeled off the stickers I left on that one sticker because I wasn’t sure how bad it was.

Well, I took it off this morning and found that it did break but it wasn’t as bad as I thought. ;) See?

I’m struggling a bit with picking the right stickers for the right nails. Lauren started with the middle fingers, so that’s what I’m trying to do but I’m not finding a good match. So I’m switching to ring finger.

First you lightly sand all the nails, which I did already. Then you apply the sticker without getting it on your cuticle or the skin on the sides of the nail.

Then you stretch it over the end of the nail a bit.

Then use a course file on the edge to “cut” it off.

I really love the snowflake on the red glitter! So pretty.

Then I moved on to the middle finger.

Some of them I used upside down so that they fit my nails better. :)

Tiffany’s nails are too short, so she just used nail polish but she did put the cute little yetis on her big toe nails.

The final step is to put on a topcoat of clear polish.Here is the finished nails. One thumb has a snowflake and the other doesn’t.We watched this as we did our nails.

It’s the first time we’ve watched Elf this season. It has a few crass moments but it is a fun movie. :)

Well, that’s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll get back to some Zentangle soon. I’ll be working on my bullet journal next week, so I don’t know if I’ll have a tile to share or will be sharing that instead.

I hope you have a very merry Christmas!

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº

    1. Well, they don’t last quite that long on me. ;) But they do last a good long time. :) Thanks for taking the time to comment.
