I'm sorry if this isn't the right place, but craftster doesn't really HAVE a right place for nail art, and I'm having trouble finding a nail art forum to ask.

Craftster, don't fail me now!

So I picked up 50 nail fimo canes from an ebay seller, and they're awesome. Only about five bucks, too.

However, I have an issue with one. I decided to practice slicing on the only cane I got in duplicate. Nothing to lose, right?

However, after slicing up a gazillion of the little things, I want to practice adding them to nails, and I can not think of a THING to do with them.
It's a cane of little leopard print bikinis on a white circular background.

I tried cutting out the bras and panties from the background, but it's hard to get all the white off with so much detail.

The only thing I can think of is perhaps a beach scene with bikini-clad torsos lounging around, but even that, I can't see how to make it work with the weird white circle.

Anyone have any ideas at all what I could do?

This is definitely the correct board! Hair, make-up and nails all fit under "Beauty."  I don't have any ideas for that, but the bikinis are really cute! Grin

hmmm...interesting dilemma.  perhaps you could do a leopard print on your nail with the white circle as the centre of one of the leopard print circle bits...if you know what I mean...  or use the white circle/bikini as the centre of a sun on each nail with your beach scene below...  these may be lame ideas, I take no responsibility for them as I don't do nail art Tongue
