COMMENTS: When I used a new set of rub-ons on my Nyx - Perfect Grey mani the next day, I realized that I'd picked a batch that didn't work well for nail art. These were thicker - more like stickers. They also had some sort of glue on them - not alot, but enough to make the rub-on process less fun. Here is the finished product. I had to use two coats of topcoat because of the thickness of these.
This is the pack they came from. These are all pretty, but too thick. Purchased at Joanne Fabric & Crafts:
And here is the pack that contributed the little green butterflies and flowers (bottom left) to my first rub-on mani. Nice and thin and tranfered easily and completely - a pleasure to work with. Also purchased at Joanne :
And the pack below contributed the days, months, and little green heart. Nice and thin and easy to work with as well. Purchased at Big Lots:
So, I learned a lesson. I need to really try to gage the thickness of the rub-on transfers before purchasing - especially since I don't do any scrapbooking or card making!
