Sharing Something Silly!!

The other day I had been shopping for something for my poor splitting fingernails. I saw the French manicure polish and thought I would give it a try. And believe me I did give it a try. Many tires!!! I just couldn't get those tapes to stick well enough to not let the white polish bleed under it. SO after I went through almost all of the tapes I was desperate. I gave it some thought and decided I was not going to go to the store and buy a package of the tapes for $5.00. I thought that there has to be something around here I can use.

White mailing labels came to mind. SO I got out my Stampin' Up! punches and found one that had the right arch to it. It was the 1-1/4" one. I punched out a few strips with it and applied it to my nails. OMG, it worked SO much better than the store ones. I was worried that it wouldn't come off the nail without leaving residue behind but they came off cleanly!!! I was thrilled. Do you know how many nails one sheet of address labels will do??? Over 50 depending on how thick you punch them. I made mine a bit thicker (wider) than the original ones. That way I could slap on the white polish and not be so restricted to space as with the store ones. Now don't look at my cuticles. It's my nails that I need to tend to right now, the cuticles will come later when the nails are repaired and healthy! Oh and I found a cute sticky flower for the nail. I had it in a drawer that I was going to use someday on my nails. Well, someday came!!! LOL They almost look natural!!! I had plenty of practice with those strips!!! LOL

SO, now you know what I do with my spare time!!! LOL

Just another use for the Stampin' Up! punches!!!

Have a great day and be resourceful!!

Is there something you don't do? So creative, I love it. I have tried it at home myself with no luck going to have to get out my punches and give it a go.
