i tried it with newspaper and it just made a really big mess....and turned my toes black. but I think I did something wrong (ie not letting it dry cause i'm an impatient loser) so I'll try again. haha

EDIT: i tried it again and the paper definitely will just not stick to my nails. it peels right off easier than that plasticy peel-off kids' polish. iunno.

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

oh that's too bad!!

I haven't it tried it yet because I want to grow my nails first. I've been so nervous about things lately that i've chewed them all off. Yes, a disgusting habit I know.

oh, I'm sorry for that ><
you have to let the base with the paper dry entirely,  or the solvents in the polish will make the ink all glibberish and the paper more likely to come off. that's my explanation for this at least. Also it could be the ink itself... I used newspapers for this, if you used something inkjet printed that could also be a reason. those solve more easily. I hope you'll find the courage for another try Cheesy

if the paper peels off easily, I'd suggest a clear base coat, completely dry, then the second base coat with the paper. maybe this helps?

well, it goes something like this:

1. apply base coat
2. press and hold piece of newspaper for 1 solid minute
3. remove fingers, newspaper is just sitting on my nail, having soaked up all the nailpolish and not stuck to anything

...so maybe your suggestion of 2 base coats would help. either way, I'm in need of breakfast atm, so I will do it later. Cheesy

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

I tried this out and it worked! Got a lot of excitement and confusion from people at school. I don't think I'll paint my nails! Think about all the paper: notebook, magazines, art!! List is endless. What about chip bags?! Lol. Thanks for showing us this idea!!
