Newspaper Nail Tutorial

Newspaper Nails!

You will need:

White nail polish
Rubbing alcohol
Strips of newspaper
Clear topcoat

1. Paint nails with a light colour. White is ideal, but anything light will do!
2. Soak nails in rubbing alcohol, making sure the whole nail is wet.
3. Press and hold newpaper strip onto nail. Don't hold for too long, or the newspaper will get stuck! About fifteen seconds should do it.
4. Wait a minute or two, and then go over with topcoat. If you do it too soon, the words will come off! But if you skip this step, they will smudge everywhere! I like to do a couple of coats, but it is entirely up to you!

And, ta~da! Newspaper nails!
