I found this idea on Pinterest (follow me here) and I just HAD to do it! First off - it required gray nailpolish and if you know me, I have a slight obsession with gray hues. I didn't have a gray that was light enough for this craft so I went online shopping for a lighter gray.
An ENTIRE OPI 12 set collection and $66 dollars later, I chose my gray: "French Quarter for Your Thoughts". OK so I went a little overboard in terms of budget for this simple craft, but in my defense it's my birthday month and I deserve a little something extra for being an AWESOME Libra. And nail polish just does it for me.
I still think the gray is a bit too dark, but I don't like to go too light on my nails. I know... I'm weird.

|Get your Alchy-hol and nail polish ready! LESSON LEARNED: If you've just painted your nails and they're dry, wait just a bit longer as they may not be completely dry and the Alchy-hol will soften it more and mess up the text transfer.|
