How to: newspaper nails.

I'm sure you've all seen how to do newspaper nails before it's all over beauty blogs and youtube but for those who dont here's my way that I do it.

Firstly you will need:

Newspaper, nude nail varnish, clear top coat and some cheap perfume ( or one you dont wear often)
- You could additionally have some nail varnish remover to neaten up once this is finished.

  • Take your nude colour and just paint all your nails and leave untill they are completley dry.
  • place the newspaper over the nail and squirt perfume onto the paper so the nail is completley covered.

So far it should look a little like this.

  • Next leave that on for around 30 seconds to 1 minute and gently remove from the nail.
  • once done you should be left with a nail that has a newspaper print on it.

It should look a little like this although as you can see mines a little untidy so here you should remove any of the newspaper or varnish that has leaked over the nail and then finally set with a clear top coat, Finished!
