Rule #30 - Sticky Situation

If you're obsessed with Cupcakes and Cashmere (as I am) and want to recreate these incredible tights she created, it is advisable to take the time to look up the actual directions instead of just winging it. It is also a good idea to assume that fabric glue and Krazy glue may possibly yield different results.

When you are in the midst of a bedazzling frenzy, securing sparkles and gems to the tights you are wearing, you will most assuredly feel a sense of dread creep into your heart when you realize that not only are said diadems securely fastened to your hosiery, but they are also tightly bonded to your skin.

As you remove the tights (once dry), each time you must rip a small jewel from your shin, ankle, knee or calf, you will flinch in pain - followed by irritation - as skin is detached from your leg, and the stones go tumbling off. Frustrated, you will probably decide not to try and remove the glue circles dotting your stems and drift off to sleep instead.

During your morning shower, you will develop temporary amnesia and forget about said sticky dots and attempt to shave your legs. Being the bright bulb you are, when you pass over a patch on your leg that burns, you will run your razor over it again and again wondering what is making it hurt. Do not be surprised, dear friend, to find in all of those areas a torrent of blood trickling down your now-smooth gam. You see, shaving off Krazy glue is an effective removal technique. It doesn't however, remove only the goop, but roughly five layers of epidermis as well.

Delightful.
