spatter up.

Dexter nails!!! 
I didn't come up with this 'technique' but I did it &
 I would say that any skill level can handle this. It's literally painting your nails white
and spitting/blowing paint onto them with a regular straw. 

Check out the full spatter tutorial on 

Btw... I'm still disturbed by the fact that the strip club dicks made the sweet bartender

Photoshop & Printer
Base Color & Top Coat

Here is a screen shot of my print out, but I can share the hi-res file with you
if you ask me nicely.

I've done this twice now, once on a laser jet & once on an inkjet. So far I had the best luck on the laser jet and got a lot of smearing from the inkjet printer. However, for my halloween nails the smearing actually made is look more ghostly, so it worked out. 
I will look into this in the future.

Mini designs.

1. Once you have your print out, cut out your little designs. 
2. Literally apply it exactly as you would a temporary tattoo to your skin.  
3. Design, face down on the nail bed.
4. Sopping wet paper towel or sponge directly on top for approx 15-30 seconds.
5. Lift paper off carefully and the design will have transfered.

After I have applied the sponge.

After the paper was lifted off. All that's left if the top coat, which
can you be done immediately.
