Adding newsprint to your nails#DIY Nails: Adding newsprint to your nails

When we paint our nails it helps to express our personality and our different moods.

We can paint our nails to match whatever outfit we choose for the day. With so many styles, colors, and ideas, achieving the perfect look can be easy.

I am always looking for new and creative ways to jazz up my nails. I found this fantastic pin on Pinterest that shows us how to transfer newsprint onto our fingernails.

Items Needed:

  • White fingernail polish
  • Alcohol
  • Small bowl
  • Newspaper
  • Clear top coat polish

1. Cut out a small portion of newspaper.
2. Paint your fingernails white.
3. Fill small bowl with alcohol.
4. Soak your dry white fingernail in the alcohol for a few seconds (I did it for about 10 seconds even though the video says shorter…I just can’t count).
5. Place newspaper piece over wet fingernail and tap/rub slightly taking care not to move paper.
6. Carefully remove newspaper and apply top coat.
7. Show off your new look to friends because this is GREAT!
