Scan me, please!

Hello again!
How are you doing today? :)
So, I saw today's brilliant manicure in Allure magazine and fell in love!
I thought.. "WOAH buddy, how creative and different!"
They are the bar-code nails!
Therefore, I just had to try it for myself.
I must say, she made it look much easier than it really was!
It took me two tries! I get frustrated easily, so this was annoying me. Plus it was sticky.
(Thanks, vodka!)
To do this cute design you will need: nail polish of choice, bar codes from a magazine, vodka (shots optional), PATIENCE, and a top coat. :)
PS: I would not recomment ThreeOlives Loopy. :p
First you will paint your nails the desired color. I chose OPI Steady as She Rose.
Once that is completely dry, you will dunk the bar code into the vodka then place on the nail, press the bubbles out, and hold in place for a few seconds.
Then you will peel the bar code off slowly. Voila!
Bar code nails.
Thank you for reading!
Have the best day!
Up next: Lavender Florals
C'est fini!
