Jewelry Made With The Cricut And Nail Acrylic!

Hi, it is Kendra here again.  On Saturday, I went to get my nails done and had the coolest idea.  Why couldn’t I make a piece of jewlery out of paper and clear nail acrylic.  I asked my nail lady before I left if I could purchase a bottle of her UV Clear Gel Nail Polish, which, believe it or not, you can dry using the Teresa Collins Stampmaker!  Whoo Hoo, I was ready to create!  So as soon as my nails were done, I headed on over to Sally’s and purchased all of my supplies.  I purchased the Perfectly Clear Acrylic and Acrylic Liquid as well as a Acrylic Nail Brush, Nail files and Nail buffers.   I already had an Acrylic Nail Drill at home as well as a various tips to sand with.  You will also need the Cricut Expression, Crocs Rule Cricut Lite Cartridge, Autumn Celebration Cricut Cartridge,  B is for Boy Cricut Lite Cartridge, Various Cardstock, a Necklace Toggle and a Pin Back.

The first thing I tried making with this method was the Sock Monkey Pin.  I then went on to follow the Beach theme for this week with the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon Pink Fish Necklace.  Hope you enjoy them both!

The Sock Monkey Pin

Sock Monkey Nail Acrylic Pin – Back

Cut out at 3” the Boy Sock Monkey from B is for Boy Cricut Lite Cartridge.  When you go to cut the layers, you will want to cut one set as normal and the other set using the flip key.  The reason you do this is so your piece of jewlery is finished and dressed on both sides!  You will then start to use the Nail Acrylic as directed to start building up the Acrylic one side at a time.  You will put the piece into the Teresa Collins Stampmaker to let it completely dry.  Do this for both sides.  Using the nail files and nail drill you will file the  acrylic smoothing it out.  Once this is complete you will use the nail buffer to smooth it out.  Be sure to dust your piece off.  Working one side a time starting with the back, paint clear UV Nail polish on the back.  Place it into the Teresa Collins Stampmaker to cure.  Apply the Clear UV Nail Polish to the front and cure again.
