News Nails

I just came across this on Tumblr and thought it was great.  It’s racked up about 58,000 notes so I bet lots of you guys have seen it already, but for those that have not :

  • Have rubbing alcohol and newspaper ready.
  • Paint your nails any color and let them dry completely.
  • Cut out a section of the newspaper & place it over your nail.
  • Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and dab it over the newspaper.

If anyone tries this out, please post pics!

    I did it on glow in the dark polish so it looks like the words are on clear nails

    Yep, that should work — I remember a similar process from a printmaking course. Neat!

    Oooooooooooooh, I just thought of something so romantic! How about putting sections from your wedding vows on your nails for the Big Day!
