Now realizing that these stencils can really only be used at best twice, I decided to give the sun one I had gotten a go on my thumbs and then classing up the rest of my nails with French tips over a gold base. I think it turned out pretty well, especially once I realized how crazy-simple it is to do French tips - you just take your brush and run it half over the nail and half over the tip of your finger. Then it looks great on the nail and you just wipe off the excess on your finger. Boom. Not-instant-but-still-pretty-easy awesome.
