Nail Art {{Using Vinyl}}

When I stumbled across this idea from Craft O Maniac, I knew I had to try it!  I was a little skeptical of using vinyl on your nails, and thought that it would only last a day or two!!  Boy was I wrong….I had it on for 2 weeks before I decided to change the color of my nail polish and do it again!   The possibilities are endless and it looks oh so cute!!!  I was so excited the day I tried it…..I might have gone a little crazy wild…..I did my toe nails, my sister-in-law’s toe nails, and of course my daughter’s toe nails!  I did them all different & they all turned out ADORABLE!!!

The process was SO easy…..

  • Put a small piece of vinyl on your cricut mat (you get to choose the color)
  • Choose the image and make it small enough that it will fit on your nail.  Cut out the image with your cricut (you can either use the Sure Cuts A lot 2 software or a cricut cartridge).

  • Peel the images off the backing of the vinyl with tweezers and use a sewing pin to pick out the itty bitty pieces if needed.
  • Apply to your painted nails, and press firmly on.
  • Apply a top coat on top of the paint and vinyl.
