Wash and file nails, and if you want, apply a base coat to your nails.

Apply about 3 coats of nail polish to your nails. If you want, paint your thumb, index finger, middle finger and pinkie light purple, and your ring finger light pink.

Step 5: Cut Out Music Notes

Carefully poor the rubbing alcohol into your bowl. The place the sheet music on your nails and soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol. Rub the alcohol onto the sheet music while it is RIGHT SIDE DOWN on your nails. Hold the paper in place for a couple minutes then gently peel it off. You may mess up a few times, but that's ok. Just paint over the nail and retry after it dries. Good luck!!!

You have to put the music on so that it is backwards or upside down

I tried this several times and the music notes never got onto my nail at all.
