Hey Strangekittens. This week’s look is a bright, practically neon blue/pink look. I learnt a new trick from theweejenny. Usually for French tips you’d use nail stickers right? But they’re kinda pricey, especially if you do it a lot. Either you develop a steady hand, or use tape like me, but then you don’t get a nice curve.
Well, theweejenny showed me these things called binder reinforcement stickers. They’re office supplies, round stickers you put on the holes in binder paper so it doesn’t rip. Check it out in the ‘What you’ll need’ below. Plus, they’re like a dollar, and it comes with hundreds, usually.
What you’ll need:
-A bright blue
-A bright pink
- Binder reinforcement stickers (or nail stickers)
- Some tweezers
Two coats of blue.
Apply stickers like so. Make sure your blue coat is COMPLETELY dry before doing this. If you like, cut them in half (like a ‘C’ shape) to make it easier, Make sure it’s sticking all the way to the edges.
Paint the pink over the top like this. Don’t do it too thick, I actually wasn’t paying attention and I screwed mine up a little because I was impatient.
Wait for that to dry, and…
Using the tweezers, carefully peel off the stickers. Caaaarefully. You might have to smooth down the edges where you peeled it off; tap it lightly with your finger. Finish with a topcoat, and you’re done!
Have a great weekend Strangekittens! Personally, i’ll be buried under photos to edit
