Vintage Cupcakes and Quilted Nails

I saw these absolutely gorgeous cup cakes a while back somewhere on pinterest and immediately fell in love with it. I wanted to get cupcakes like that for my sister's birthday. However, I couldn't find a place in Hong Kong that sell cupcakes like those. So, I thought I'll just put them on my nails.

These gorgeous cupcakes are the work of The Creative Cake Academy.  Aren't they delicate?  You can check them out here:  They offer different cupcake/cake decorating workshops.  They are absolutely stunning!  I just went to check out their website and is totally awed.  The little cupcakes all look like a piece of art.

Anyways, back to the nails.  It's my first attempt to do quilted nails by pressing on semi-dried nails. Please excuse the poor quilting work on my thumb and ring finger. I'll need to practice a few more times in the future to get it right.  I took a video of this at first, but I kept on screwing up and my camera ran out of battery.  This quilting thing drove me crazy.  At first, I tried to create the lines with a little piece of cardboard and failed to make straight even lines.  Then I asked Cho to do it for me.  It's really impossible for me to create these lines with one hand. Cho just took a piece of thread (she was sewing) and press it on my semi dried nails.

What do you use to press on your nails for quilting?  Any easier methods?
