I got this idea for this nail art from Lischen's Blog. The original tutorial for the ingenious technique can be found here.
It's super easy and fun too, because you are ultimately where history on you! I'm thinking about experimenting with cartoon prints, and other various ink sources. Maybe even doing some designs with Korean, Vietnamese, and Thai papers which would be cool to look at/try. Haha!
I'm sure this would look quite romantic on soft pink or purple polishes.
Have you tried any comparable techniques?
