Newspaper Nails

26 Jan

This was a tough one. Newspaper print nails are supposed to be done on natural polished nails, but we just had to try it over gel nails…

Little did we know trying to press the newspaper print overtop of cured gel nails is a lot more challenging than pressing them over polish! It took me forever to get those on, but we finally got it after awhile. Lets just say no more newspaper print over GEL for awhile!

Newspaper Print Nails

How it’s Done: After all coats of polish are on your nails, let them completely dry. Cut out little pieces of newspaper articles and set aside. When they are dry, dip your finger into a little bowl of alcohol for 5 seconds. Then, pick up the newspaper clipping and press onto your nail making sure it covers the entire nail plate. Leave the newspaper pressed on your nail for 15 seconds and slowly peel off. Top coat and VOILA!

      So time consuming! Haha I applied the color, wiped it with alcohol and then dipped the little piece of newspaper in alcohol and then placed it on the nail for a few seconds. It took many tries for each nail! Haha Defiantly easier on natural nails, but you should try it and let me know how you did!
