Newspaper Nails

I love spending time working on my nails and finding something new, different and creative to do with them. These newspaper nails are perfect for this because they work every time and I find them very fashionable. I thought I would share this with you to try out on yourselves! So, here are the 6 easy steps:

What you will need:
  • A sheet of newspaper
  • A pale nail polish
  • A clear nail polish or top coat
  • Some scissors
  • An egg cup
  • Some Vodka
  1. Cut the newspaper into 10 pieces, big enough to fit onto your nails.
  2. Apply enough (most of the time 2) coats of the pale nail polish and let it dry completely.
  3. Dip one finger into the egg cup of vodka.
  4. Hold a strip of newspaper onto the nail, covering it and keeping it still. Do this for about 20 seconds. You may need to dap a little more of the vodka on top of the newspaper.
  5. Slowly peel of the newspaper.
  6. Once you have completed every nail and all the vodka on your nails have dried, apply a of clear nail polish or top coat.

  1. Ahh! I have seen this sort of thing in other places,but all others say you need this random alcohol thing you get from art shops haha! Vodka is much easier for an eighteen year old to get her hands on ;) hehe.
    I'm totally going to follow you both now because I keep seeing interesting and helpful posts!
    Also, your background is my first background! (aww)
