Newspaper nails

This is another one of my older manis, I tried my hand at newspaper nails! I used a tutorial where you dip the newspaper in rubbing alcohol and then press onto your nail for a few seconds so the ink transfers. The pinky came out really well but the rest...not so much! Not sure what I did differently to make the pinky come out right, but I wouldn't mind trying it again sometime. What a really cool look when it comes out well!


  1. Wow, wow, wow! How do you do this? I mean I know you said to dip it in rubbing alcohol but wouldnt that mess up the polish?
    I hope you put up a tutorial about this :O

  2. Apparently not! The polish stays fine while the ink transfers. Alcohol doesn't dissolve polish the way acetone does. I press an alcohol soaked square on the nail for about 10 seconds and peel it off. Then topcoat!
