HOW TO; newspaper nails

I had a lot of people asking me too do a post on how I did my newspaper nails so here we go!! 🙂

All you need is; A newspaper & some vodka

Cut up the newspaper into strips that will cover your whole nail paint your nails too a colour you want, (but id use a lighter colour so the newspaper print shows up better!)

& leave them too dry

Once there dry, put some vodka into a little bowl, and dip your fingers in one by one.

Once your nail is fully soaked take it out, grab a piece of the cut up newspaper and press it tightly onto your nail for around 15-20 seconds.

Remove the newspaper and the newspaper should have printed onto your nails! Go over the top with clear nail varnish so its less likely too chip!

The end result;

    This is on my list of things to try but uh not with Vodka! Lol besides the fact that I hate vodka so I don't have any, there has to be another way.. Maybe the tequila I have. Actually no not really. Can't waste liquor for this..
