Nail-polish strips

For no-mess manicures
  (+9, -3)

Tiny fingernail shaped (or toenail-shaped for pedicures) pieces of glossy clinging plasticlike stuff in an array of colors that you press to the nail surface to apply and peel off to remove. Would be as pretty as liquid nail polish, with none of the mess or drying time. In sheers, creams, frosts, and sparkles. Apply more nail-gloss strips if you want additional "coats"

       Peter, with ideas like this one + Victor's Secret + Hair Dessert..... I'm thinking [Sparki] is a New York City Drag Queen.....(not that there's anything wrong with that)...what do you think?

       Nice idea, Sparki. You go, girlfriend!

       Peter, no, these seem to be press on nail POLISH.   

       Could have partially transparent ones that would let you do a 3d effect when layered...

       Aren't everybody's finger nails different shapes?
Mayfly, Aug 07 2001
  

       You could do something like this using a mechanism like those Tipp-Ex roller thingamyjigs.

       I am not a cross dresser or a drag queen. i am a lady. I'm a lady who likes guys who like ladies.
Sparki, Aug 09 2001
  

       But are you a girl who likes boys who like boys who like girls, and I forget how it goes after that?

       [ws] You know it's not really a secret...it's cotton.

       I'm a woman who likes horses who like dogs who like men who like dogs who like horses who like women...but I also have a fondness for men who don't necessarily like horses or dogs but have the first name Bob and play music and write poetry and have a son named Jacob who also plays music and writes poetry.....wait, what was the point of this again?

       What IS Letraset traditionally used for, anyhow?
Sparki, Aug 10 2001
  

       Peter, why just the TEEN set? Grown women may like this sort of thing too.
Sparki, Aug 10 2001
  

       Yes! I need a no-mess manicure! (not!)

       Uncle Nutsy — Good show! Those lyrics were always a Blur to me.

       Maybe a nail polish which will only bond to fingernails. This way one could merely dip their fingers in the (suitably open-mouthed) bottle and then rinse.

       Or some chimical that changes the colour of kiatin (sp? the stuff nails and hair is made of)

       exist already - but fall off.   

       Lancome also created a pealable nail polish but that looks to have been discontinued - I think it was a rubber compound that was designed to stay on for 1 day.   

       chemicals that change keratin - hair dye and peroxide!
