    I spend a lot of time trying out different ideas and techniques (confession, I never do the designs on my left hand, just the base colour I've used for that finger on my right hand :mmm:)

    Aw thanks, me too but I no longer have the fringe and the red's gone :lol:

    Choose your base coat (looks better on cream), when its dry, rip off strips of newspaper and leave them to soak in water/vodka (I used water for a faded look, in alcohol it comes out a darker black). Hold the strips down over the nail hard for about 45 seconds, peel strip off, leave it ten minutes then apply top coat

    I tried LOTR nails. My ring inscription smudged and I had to go over it thick and it ruined it :huff: the blue ones are supposed to be silhouettes, yanno, on their travels, but I'm not sure you can quite make that out. I'm meh on these.
