So recently I came across 'newspaper nails' and whilst bored last night I thought it would be a good way to cure my bordem! It's extremely easy and all you need is a newspaper stips x 10 (I used a magazine and it worked just as well), vodka (rubbing alcohol can also be used), nail varnish (pale colours work better), a top coat nail varnish and a small glass to put the vodka in (I used an egg cup).
Once you have all the stuff it is extremely easy to do! All you have to do is paint your nails with the chosen polish and wait for them to dry. One they are dry pour a bit of vodka in the cup (enough to cover your whole nail!) and then dip one of your nails into the cup and make sure it is completely covered, put the newspaper strip on your nail and hold for 20 seconds then slowly remove the newspaper strip. Do the same thing one each one of your nails and then finish by painting your nails with a top coat (any clear nail polish works) and then leave to dry!
I'm not too sure if I'm too keen on this look yet, I think I would have preferred it if I had used another colour, oh well there is always next time!
Have you tried newspaper nails?
Have a great day!
