Newspaper Nails

The post title says it all and the images show you how to get them! Super easy..I haven't added any text as I think the pictures are really easy to follow but......

You must:
  • Make sure your nails are completely dry when attempting this. I waited a day for my nail varnish to dry before I tried this out.
  • When holding the newspaper over your nails, use more than one layer. If you use one layer of newspaper the ink doesn't transfer so well and just turns soggy! 
  • Hold your nail in the Surgical Spirit for at least 20 seconds. 
  • After you've completed the look apply a top coat to lock the ink in.




Surgical Sprit and a newspaper.

Leave nails to soak in Surgical Spirit for 20 seconds

Cover nail in 2-3 layers of newspaper
(works better than using one sheet)
Add a top coat to lock in the print!

What do you think of these nails, have you tried them? I'm looking forward to experimenting with other colours!
