Today I have a neat Guest Poster for you. Maggie from Chica es Artistica volunteered to help out while I’m stuck with incredibly limited internet service. So, without further delay, here she is:
Hi! I’m Maggie from Chica es Artistica . I’m so excited to be here at While He Was Napping!
Around Tumblr, I saw a post about how to paint your nails and have text on them. It looked pretty simple and cute. I just had to try it out. Since my nails were already beautifully done, I looked to my sick little sister and noticed her itty bitty chewed up nails were looking rather plain. Hmmm. Cheer her up and test out this idea? Sounds like a plan to me.

Here’s how to get these babies:
1. Paint your nails in a desired color. The lighter the shade, the darker the words will show up on them.
2. Dip your nails into alcohol. It suggested vodka but all we had were alcohol swabs so I just used those.
3. Press a small piece of newspaper onto the nail and leave it there for a few seconds, applying some pressure.
4. Peel off slowly and be amazed. Mostly.
This doesn’t work all the time. Since we used the swabs, it didn’t get the nail as wet so we didn’t have as high of a success rate.
