How to do this: Paint your nails white/cream and let dry. Soak nails in rubbing alcohol for five minutes, then press down on map, newsprint or patterned scrapbook paper. The design will rub off onto nails. Cover with clear coat. Should do this before I leave for India.. ya know, in case we get lost, we just have to look at my nails. Hah!
Mix just a small amount of cornstarch to your polish to make it matte. Apply quickly or else it will start to get clumpy. It may feel like it applies weird and clumpy but as it dries it will smooth itself out. (tip: the more cornstarch the more matte it will turn out!) enjoy!!!
