YES!!! For the money tips go to sallys get IBD brand Gel Resin. It is in a white bottle that looks and smells like super glue nail adhesive! Then get a small bottle of the wraps accelerator. If you need help, ask a store clerk to show you exactly what I told you.

1. Prep your nails by making sure they are dry and cuticles pushed back

2. Trim the paper or fabric you want to cover your nail. It can extend the tip a little because once the chemicals are on the paper/fabric, you can file it like your own nails.

3. brush a thin layer of gel resin on your entire nail surface and quickly lay your paper/fabric over your nail. Cut a small 2 inch square piece out of a ziploc bag and smooth out bubbles (this helps so your finger doesnt stick)

4. Apply a thin layer of gel resin over entire nail again (now with your applied image) and spray a light mist of your accelerator over your nail that you just brushed. The accelerator dries the gel resin instantly.DO NOT do thick layers of either gel resin or accelerator as these are chemicals and too much of either or both will get really HOT!!! IT takes one time and you will know what you did wrong!!not to mention there will be uneveness in the surface caused by bubbles.

5. Layer as many layers as you would like for desired thickness.... File, Buff and add a top coat! THe best top coat is Out THe Door...also at Sallys. THen I want to see pics!!! Any questions feel free to PM me!!

Wow, that is so amazing!! Personally, I have acrylic nails, but thats awesome. Can you apply that stuff to natural nails? I would be scared to death though, because my nails are pretty long and strong and I just couldn't mess them up.

Awesome technique, and I was thinking if you can return the bill, as long as the serial # is there, why not go for broke and do a $100 bill!  You could use it, then just send it back, so you're not out the money, AND it would be ridiculous!  Just a thought.

Nice work,

Jac
