Hand-painted at home nail stencils

Stencils to help the non-artistic achieve professional looking hand-painted nails.
  [vote for,

Hand-painted nails cost an arm and a leg. It would be nice to do it at home in the comfort of one’s 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 “Don’t 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!

       //or a mouse…//

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, they’re dead!

       Aircraft model-style decals with water-soluable adhesive. Wet the decal, slide it on, pat dry and lacquer over.
