Ever want to make a design that was too complicated to draw free-hand? I've got your problem solved! This worked out perfectly for my Fashion's Night Out nails and I can't wait to use this again!!

  2. For some reason I have a hard time understanding the steps. Seems like it would be a good idea though, if I understood lol

    1. Haha okay, I'll try to help! First take whatever design you plan on tracing and tape it down to a table or some stable surface. Then tape a plastic zip bag over it. With a clear nail polish, paint on top of the bag, over where the designs are. (I printed a couple of the designs that I wanted to do and painted over several of them with the clear polish, just in case I messed up.) After the clear polish dries, take a tiny paintbrush and paint over the design. (I found acrylic paint to be MUCH easier than nail polish.) Then with a tweezer or careful fingers, lift the clear polish off the bag and place it where you want on your nail. Use a top coast to seal it in and you're done! Hope this helps!! :)

  4. Jaja bueno, voy a intentar ayudar! En primer lugar lo que diseñar plan de el seguimiento y cinta hasta una mesa o una cierta superficie estable. Luego pegue una bolsa de plástico zip sobre él. Con un esmalte de uñas transparente, pinte encima de la bolsa, donde los diseños son. (Imprimí un par de los diseños que yo quería hacer y pintado sobre varios de ellos con el esmalte claro, por si acaso ha desordenado). Después de que se seque el esmalte claro, toma un pequeño pincel y pintura sobre el diseño. (He encontrado pintura acrílica para ser mucho más fácil que el esmalte de uñas). Luego con una tweezers o dedos cuidadosos, levante el esmalte claro de la bolsa y colocarlo donde desee en su clavo. Uso una coat superior para sellar ya terminado! Espero que esto ayude!

  6. I don´t quite get the first part. You put tape ON TOP of the design (with the sticky part facing down) and then you put a ziploc bag on TOP of that? doesn´t make sense to me... :S

  7. FYI this person took your image, put their own watermark on it, and it now leads to their site: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/526780487636386317/

  8. I don't quite understand a few parts of this, sorry :/ Firstly, what do you print your design onto, is it on paper ??? And I was also wondering how the design actually transfers onto the ziplock bag?
