Step 1: Materials

You will need: Baby oil/ almond extract/ rubbing alcohol ( I used almond extract ) A small container ( I used a small dish to hold cashews ) A pale color ( I used a creamy white ) A pen ( use a Biro or the ink will run ) Cotton buds ( Q-tip ) Ruler ( or a straight object ) Strip of plain newspaper ( cut from the edge ) Scissors Clear nail varnish Optional extra: Dotting tool ( for hearts ) Red nail varnish Black nail varnish Under coat Nail varnish remover ( incase of a mistake )

Step 2: Drawing Your Nails

Get your strip of newspaper and write/draw what you want on your nails. Remember if you want to be able to read it you have to write it backwards. I put music ( backwards ) and I drew some notes.

Step 3: Painting Your Nails

Paint your nails in the color you want them to be. I did the thumb and the last two fingers white the middle finger black with a red heart and the other finger red with a black 'I'.

Step 4: Putting the Drawing On

Cover your nail in the oil/ extract the place the drawing face down on the nail and hold it there for 30secs then carefully peel it of and cover with a layer of clear polish.

Step 5: How to Do a Heart and a 'I'

With the dotting tool make 2 dots then drag them together. For the 'I' draw a thin vertical line then 2 horizontal lines each end.
