check out my cosmic nail art...this was surprisingly easy to do!!! all i did was buy some press-on nail strips...a friend tells me the cheaper ones work better ...these are from"kiss" and this set is "strength and beauty" (it cost only $3, found @ my local drugstore.)
-i cut the pre-cut strip down even further with maincure scissors after putting it on my nail-- my nails are very tiny and short...i could use one strip for 2, sometimes 3 nails.
-i lifted them off the backing with a pair of tweezers. and set them down just above the cuticle.
-after pressing them on, i trimmed the edges with a nail clipper. i used the edge of the tweezer to smooth them into shape, working from the center, out.
-pressed the remaining edges down, folding any small ragged edges down over the edge of the nail
-filed the nails after doing all that...carefully and using a very fine salon board.
