Anti Valentine's Day Manicure

Hey guys! My mother came up with this awesome idea to do an anti V-Day mani but to make it more like a ransom note. The first time I tried it I used larger letters and it turned out horrible, so smaller letters worked out way better! First, I clipped letters out of a Home and Garden magazine making sure I had a few extra on hand just in case I messed up. Second, I applied 2 coats of my base color and waited till they were completely dry. Third, I applied the letters with a small dab of elmer's glue and held it down with my finger for a few seconds. Fourth, I sealed in the letters with my Seche Vite Top Coat. Fifth, I Chose an image off of my nail plates that best fit the word and stamped my thumbs. I hope you all enjoyed this creative mani! Comment below and let me know what you think!
