Question Do you think this will work?

Hi

I'll admit it - I am not the most creative person out there. I can't even put an outfit together unless it comes together or the mannequin in the store has the pieces together. If they had Geranimals for adults I'd be the first in line to buy them.

However, I love the idea of the Disney Toes. I don't get pedicures but will ask my husband to paint my toe nails for me. He has gotten much better at it over the years.

We will be on a cruise and then going to Disney World. It's not a Disney cruise so I don't plan on having the Disney Toes until I get to Disney World. I stopped at Michaels (a crafts store) and asked if they had any type of Disney hole punchers. The woman sent me to the scrapbooking area. Not being the creative type, this was my first time in this area as well as in the store. I found this thing called a Disney Border Punch on sale for $4.99 (originally $14.99) that would punch a mickey head, a star, an M, another star, and a Mickey hand along the border of a page.

Here's my idea. I'll punch some strips of paper with the different designs. Then cut out the Mickey head (or maybe try some of the others too). After my toes are painted whatever color and dry, I can put the little piece of paper with the Mickey head punched out over my toe nail. Then have my husband go over it with a different color nail polish. Remove the paper and there is a perfectly shaped Mickey head (or other design) on my toe.

I was also thinking I can get colored paper and use the hole punch and then glue the little cut out onto my toe, but I'm not sure how well that would stay with getting wet in the rain, pool, or shower. At least with the nail polish it will stay on.

I haven't tried it yet - hubby isn't home right now, but I figured my Disboards friends would understand my excitement and let me know if my idea is nuts or not.

Let me know what you think or if anyone else has tried this.

Thank you
Noreen

You might peel off the nail polish when trying to take the mickey head cut out off. You can try to just put the mickey head on and seal it with a clear top coat.

I bought little crystals in two different sizes and when I get my pedicure I am going to glue them in place and then cover it with a clear coat.

You can also let the pedi dry completely and then stick on a Disney sticker and cover with many coats of clear.

When I did this for sculptured finger nails a while back, I painted my own nails in French then bought the rhinestones in the nail section. I licked (yep licked) the tip of an orange stick point, stuck it to the rhinestone and they picked up perfectly for me to then lay on my nail. Just a tip for those doing this with stones. The orange stick makes them really easy to place and then I let them set for a few minutes then painted clear over the nails. Good luck they are precious!!

How did your pedi melt? I live here, and I've never had a pedicure melt!!! Now the beach and chlorine are another story . . . .

I have painted my toes red and then put hole reinforcers on my big toe and painted it black in the center. When you remove the reinforcer it makes a perfect circle for Mickeys head and then you can just paint 2 circles for the ears.Just a little idea for ya!
