Plastic nails for bjd tutorial by cian1675 Plastic nails for bjd tutorial by cian1675
i came across a doa thread quite a while ago where people were discussing what is the best way to make long nails for dolls. someone suggested straws. so i did this today for fun, and made a tutorial if anyone's interested to try it out. it isn't that difficult to figure out how to do, but i figured some photos won't hurt. the only part that i had to think about how to do was which direction to cut the straw to get that natural curve nails have.

the hand used here is a female lishe hand. gabby is a cp dreaming lishe boy, and he normally wears male cp hands, but i did the nails on the girl hands, so i was lazy and just swapped the female hands onto him for some photos.

Yup, but you might want to make sure the straw can take the heat first and try on a small piece to see if the straw holds up. And you're welcome :) Most people paint them on, haha, but I like temporary solutions for photoshoots if I feel like it >_<
