I got a free Hello Kitty nail plate the other day (you know, the kind where you put the lacquer on the metal plate, scrape it off to reveal the engraved part of the plate now filled with polish, you take a stamp-y thing and put the image on your nail). I was totally intrigued! But it didn't come with 1. the polish, 2. the scraper and 3. the stamp. Womp, womp...
But I made it work! I got some pigmented nail lacquer (black), an old plastic card and a make up sponge wrapped in plastic wrap. All this worked like a charm and look! I got Hello Kitty on my nail. Pretty cool, eh? I thought that Richard's neice would enjoy this. She will, once I do her digits! Cute.
Uh oh.. yep, that's a cut. I got it from peeling off the plastic off the plate. Then I got black nail polish on it and it hurt like a mother fugger. I tried to get most of the black off...how? By saturating a Q-tip with acetone and rubbing it in. Hah! And here, I thought getting the polish in there hurt...it's okay though. I sucked it up and got it all off. The last thing I really want is a nail polish tattoo, done this way. Nail stamping, fine.
I don't even like Hello Kitty. >:T
