Summer Challenge - Retro/Summer of Love/ Hippie

Hi, its saturday, and its time for some nail art, todays theme, in the Summer Challenge is Retro/Summer of Love/ Hippie. This is my take on it.

For this mani I printed out and resized the logo on Summer Of Love, so that it would somewhat fit my nails. This was the first time I tried transfering images from ordinary paper with alcohol. I just dipped the image in some vodka, and pressed it to my nails.
For my pinky I used H&M - Lime, and added a flower to the base.
What do you think?

  1. That's such a good idea printing out an image and transering it with alcohol. I knew you could do it with newspaper but I didn't know you could use regular paper too! I'll have to give it a go.

    Love the design :)

    1. I didn't think it would work either, since newspaper paper is so special, so thin and all. But I just had to try it out. On some of the nails, pieces of paper where still stuck on my nails, but I just dipped my finger in water and rubbed the paper off, and it didn't ruin the image or anything.
      I will definitely try out this again, I had so much fun doing it.
      Send me a link, if you ever try it out, would love to see. :)
