Lord of the Rings nails forged in Mount Doom

A couple of weeks ago, we featured a rad Lord of the Rings wedding that won everyone over with its Hobbit-y garb, forest setting, and a bride with an unbelievable family tree tattoo. Continuing in the spirit of The One Ring, I found this complex-but-amazing tutorial from Billythebrime.tumblr.com for giving your nails a little evil ring flavor.

The tutorial uses a freezer bag and a top coat transfer to make the design into a decal, essentially. You trace the design on the plastic, cover it in the clear top coat, let it dry, and you can peel it off and place it on your nails! Cool, right?

  1. OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD This is the coolest thing EVER! WOW! Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂

  2. This is amazing but I don't think I would be talented enough to pull it off. If someone were to paint this on some fake nails, I would gladly buy them!
