I’ve been M.I.A., I know… It’s about time I got back to work though so here’s a little DIY for you to have a go at.
A couple of weeks ago, a reader and new friend sent me a link with the following instructions for Newsprint Nails.
Now, I tried this. But the polish I was printing on was a pink-coral color… and the print would have definitely been way more obvious had I done it over white or nude… HOWEVER, I didn’t get much ink off the paper by following these instructions… so, I don’t know.
But I am not one to give up easily and I will most definitely be making a second attempt in the very near future. I will of course post my results but in the meantime, give it a try. If you get some good results, I’d love to see them!!!
Anyway, here’s what the article said to do to get your own Newsprint Nails.
- Paint Nails and let dry.
- Dip fingernail in alcohol- (basically any will do, vodka is suggested.)
- Press a strip of newspaper big enough to cover the whole nail on to your alcohol soaked nail
- Pull off slowly.
- Paint top coat if desired.
Give it a try! Let me know how it works out! I’ll be trying again real soon!
