Incoco Holiday Cutouts...

I showed you some of the Incoco Holiday nail wraps yesterday and promised to show you a manicure that I created with a few leftover wraps. I combined two of the nail wrap designs for a simple, but fun look using an inexpensive little punch...

The small punch that I used can be purchased for around a dollar in the scrap-booking section at Michaels. I've used similar punches before in my nail art to cut shapes out of nail wraps or dried polish 'decals' and I think they are lots of fun. The small image on the top of the punch somewhat resembled a snowflake with irregular 'petals', however as you can see the resulting cutout were perfect little flowers...

Once punched out, I simply peeled the wrap off the backing and applied them to the nails. To make sure that everything stayed in place, I did seal the manicure off with a top coat, although I don't think that is absolutely necessary...

In my haste to add a top coat, I forgot that the nail wraps not only need to be peeled off the paper backing, BUT they also have a clear film on top. I actually forgot to remove the clear film and didn't realize it until it was time to remove my manicure and all of a sudden I had clear little flowers everywhere. Oy! Live and learn...

I debated adding a rhinestone to the center of these so called snowflakes, but that made them look even more flowery than they already were. Come Spring or Summer time I will definitely be using this punch for some flowers with pretty rhinestone centers...

Let me know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
