This is what my current nail situation looked like. They were patriotic but now more like a disgrace to our country.
I removed the faded glory and put new coats of Sally Hansen's Shell We Dance and Barracuda on my ring finger.
Once the paint was dry I then dipped my nails into rubbing alcohol and held my finger in the cup for about 3-5 secs. (Do this one nail at a time.)
Don't be alarmed when the paper sticks to your nails. At least this is what happened to me every time. After applying the dictionary pages to each nail I simply washed my hands with soap and water. An occasional paper fiber will stay behind but once I painted a clear coat I couldn't really notice anymore.
Things to keep in mind: The font/design should be on the smaller side. Your type will be reversed, so if you want to actually be able to read it, print off a mirror image so when placed on your nail it will be right side up. IF you are a perfectionist I don't recommend doing this before going out in public. It takes a couple a tries to get it right.
Also, I don't recommend doing this project near painted furniture. My coffee table is the closest thing the to couch (remember I was vegged out pretending I'm Winnie Cooper). So this could happen to you.
Guess I know how I will be spending the rest of my Sunday! Hope you guys had a glorious 4th of July, and an amazing past two weeks!
