Hand-painted nails cost an arm and a leg. It would be nice to do it at home in the comfort of ones own home using cheap nail varnish. My claws, I mean my nails are very important to me and I spend a good deal of time tending to them. I keep them sharp much the same as anyone, by ripping the curtains
to bits which keeps the old retraction muscles supple.
However when I go out on the town with the crowd, I want my nails to look really something. I quite fancy a little slogan like Dont Mess with Me, Buster. My lady friends might quite prefer something a little prettier like a fishbone, a bird or a mouse you know what the girls are like, silly creatures.
So, anyway, you attach the stencils to the ends of the fingers and paint away at a pre-cut stencil of your choice. A little light breathing on them, wait for them to dry and there you have it. Voila!

One of those wag-squealers, you mean? Difficult creatures. Tend to keep coming back to life. My cat much prefers chippies: once you bite the heads off, theyre dead!
||Aircraft model-style decals with water-soluable adhesive. Wet the decal, slide it on, pat dry and lacquer over.
||Hey give a Kat a break its my one and only idea. Although I do have one under my collar so to speak.
