Time for a new addition to The Nail File! It’s also Visual FBFF hosted by Miss Rockwell from Thrifty and Shameless. To see more awesome nail looks, click on over. This week’s manicure is another trend for nails this summer.. most I’ve found through pinterest. This week its Newsprint Nails. I promise, its WAY easier than it looks!
It took about 20 minutes in all to do this manicure. Waiting for nail polish to dry was the longest part. Here’s how to…..
1) What You’ll Need
Rubbing Alcohol (or any kind of strong liquor) poured into a small bowl
Small Strips of Newspaper (wide enough to cover the nail)
Nails With A Dry Pale Coat of Polish On Them
2) Dip Your Nail
Dip your nails in the bowl of rubbing alcohol for 5 to 10 seconds. You want it to be soaked.
3) Press On the Newspaper
Press the newspaper PRINT SIDE DOWN onto your nail. I messed up my first nail by having the newspaper the wrong way. Press/rub the newspaper all over the nail for about 15 to 20 seconds. Then peel off.
4) Apply Clear Coat
Apply a clear coat after you’ve completed all nails on one hand. The top coat is necessary! Otherwise the newsprint will rub off the second your hands are underwater.
This has been one of my favorite summer manicures by far! I’ve gotten lots of compliments and “How did you do that?’s” It is definitely worth trying because it is so easy!
