Michael’s Craft Scissors Manicure Experiment

I’ve been seeing a lot of manicures that use scotch tape cut with craft scissors.  So I took Al to Michael’s to check them out, and he was amazed that such a thing existed.  We found a bunch of different kinds, and they were sold one, two, three, four, and six in a set, and I was trying to decide which ones were the best when Al found a box of 12 different craft scissors for only 6 bucks!  So I grabbed them up, and hoped for the best.  Here are the scissors that I used first for this manicure.  They cut perfectly, the lines were crisp and the scissors cut straight with no difficulty.  I hope the rest of them will be as good!

I decided not to use scotch tape, but instead painted a square of polish on a plastic sandwich bag and when it dried, I teased it off and then cut the polish with my new craft scissors.  I placed the polish decal on my wet fingernails with tweezers, and it worked out great.  For my thumb, pointer, and middle fingers I used OPI Schnapps Out Of It, and for my pinky and ring fingers I used OPI Don’t Talk Bach To Me.  The accents were OPI My Vampire Is Buff and then I topped them all off with Essie As Gold As It Gets.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
