Nail Art Rub-ons

This past weekend, I attended my niece's graduation from California Lutheran University (CLU).  Her school's colors were purple and gold and I made her an adorable graduation card that was CASED exactly from  Thank you Jackie!  Here's the card I made:

In keeping up with the school color theme, I decided to paint my toe nails purple.  As the polish was drying, I had a brainstorm about using Stampin' Up! Rub-ons to create NAIL ART.   I know, it sounds strange, but I thought I would give it a try.  Here are the results:
1. Paint nails and let polish dry completely.
2. Adhere rub-on per package directions (using popsicle stick to apply).
3. Paint a light coat of clear polish over the rub-on to seal it.  Make sure you do this quickly as the rub-on smears (as if it were wet paint).
4. Optional:  Add tiny rhinestones for some bling.

I know this is probably the weirdest use of Stampin' Up! product EVER, but I had to share. :)
