In ode to my reclaimed fascination with DIY projects, I decided to try one just to kick off the upcoming weeks. I decided to do newspaper nails after watching some DIY nail art videos.
I choose newspaper nails because I didn’t need any fancy art brushes or a certain type of nail polish. All I needed was a light shade of nail polish, rubbing alcohol, and newspaper clippings.
The process went as follows:
1) Paint nails
2) Paint a second coat on nails
3) Let nails completely dry
4) Dip 1 finger in a small bowl of alcohol for 2-3 seconds
5) Press newspaper clipping on nail and hold the clipping on nail with light pressure for 6 seconds
6) Remove clipping
7) Repeat on the other 9 nails
The video that inspired me can be found here at Seventeen, but there’s also several YouTube videos on newspaper nails.
