Newspaper Nails

This is pretty simple, but seeing as id done the whole Tie-dye nail thing I thought id carry on the D.I.Y theme.

Me and my friend tried out these nails and they turned out pretty well. I can let you know that using Gin instead of vodka or any of the pharmacy friendly substances that most websites recommend.

So, for this you will need:
Grey/white nail polish (any light colour would use I guess)
Clear nail varnish
Cotton wool

1. Firstly, prep your nails as usual and put a base coat of your colour on. Also make sure you've cut up some nail sized strips of newspaper.

2. Secondly, dip the cotton wool in the alcohol and layer a piece of newspaper over your nail. Put the cotton wool over your nail and hold it there for about ten seconds or so.

3. After removing the newspaper you should be left with the print on your nail. Go over this with the clear nail varnish to hold the print in place.

Mine and Naomi's nails, not a very good photo, but you get the idea.
