When I read this post, I thought it was a super cute and easy idea. Just think about the presents that come full of tissue paper. I just scored some red tissue paper in a present from my parents :) I have to say that I just love the colors used here. I would put my own spin on it since I have a few different shaped hole punches.

Punch out tissue paper circles. Put about 5-7 pieces on top of each other to get a good solid punch.
Paint the base of the nails with any color you want. We used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Cruising because clearly metallic gold says party.
Use a pen to pick up the pieces of confetti and lay them down on the wet nail polish. Make a couple pieces overlap and/or cut some of the pieces down so you can lay them against the cuticle as seen in the final photo.
Let some of the confetti pieces hang over the edge and trim them down when you’re done laying them all down.
Once all of the pieces are where you want them, go over the whole nail with a good top coat!
