Newspaper Print Nails

This is a really cool, fun and easy way to spunk up your nails. I will show you step by step how I did this look.

These are the things you will need. 
3.Hand Sanitizer
4.Base Coat
5.Top Coat
6.Nude Nail Polish 

Begin by polishing your nails with a base coat. 

Choose a nude color, & polish two coats. I used "Nude" by Forever 21.

Let your nails dry completely. While they are drying cut out ten pieces of random parts of newspaper a little bigger than the size of your nail. I saw some really cool prints of different oriental letters and thought they would give it a little twist. You could get creative and choose numbers also to change it up a bit. And of course, regular english prints.

Put a pump of hand sanitizer on the paper towel.

Once your nails are completely dry. Dip your nail in the hand sanitizer and let it sit for about ten seconds. 

You only need a small layer of sanitizer on the nail to wet the newspaper when you lay it on your nail. 

Then place the piece of newspaper with the print you want to stay on the nail facing the nail and hold it still for about 20 seconds. 
Keep your hands still, any movement will smudge the print. 

This is what it will look like. 

Follow these steps on the rest of your nails. Let it dry for a couple minutes. Then polish your nails with top coat. 

I'd love to know what you think, leave me a comment below!
