    it wont bend to the shape of my nail !!

    Painting your nails for school??? It's a bit extravagant for a woodwork lesson........you're only gonna knock them in with a hammer:?

    Masking tape?

    The women are too busy in the kitchen

    I was gonna do this to my nails,then decided that my right hand would probably end up looking a bit crappy!:oops:

    The white polish I bought did end up useful though to create a nice french.

    Just a thought.........if the crosses become to hard to get right,why not paint alternate nails red and white:thumbsup:

    ah was just about to say are you allowed, as my daughter wanted to do her's but they arnt allowed to wear nail varnish....................what i normaly do when i paint my nails is....... mind you my daughter did paint my nails when she was younger & she tried her make-up skills on me :-D

    Why dont you get someone else to do your other hand!! Using masking tape you will probably get gloopy bits!
    Or you could paint something with red nailvarnish, eg masking tape stick that on, then clear over the top! (i am quite impressed with that idea)

    haha i did it free hand ! its quite bad but oh well !!

    I am sure you can buy nail transfers/stickers you can put on your nails.
    Something like: ebay item number 110539819566, you can probably get them in Claire's accessories.
