Newspaper Print Nails

I have seen lots of  videos and blog posts on newspaper print nails and since I work as a reporter on a local newspaper I had to give this a try.




The method to create this manicure was surprisingly simple. I painted my nails with one coat of Beth's Blue by Models Own and waited for it to dry.

Beth's Blue is good to go in one coat which is great for this manicure if you want something unique and fast.

Then I poured some rubbing alcohol into a glass ramekin dish and cut small sections out of a newspaper. I dunked my finger (one at a time) into  the solution then firmly press a paper cutting onto the nail.

Leave for around 30 seconds, I like to keep pressure on the paper, keeping it flat to the nail. I found it helped the ink transfer to the nail better.

Do this for all then digits and finish with a top coat - I used Seche Vite.
