[Tutorial] Newspaper Printed Nails


My first time doing a nail tutorial + pictorial! Yayyy!!!

The pictorial was mostly screenshots I took from the video~ But I think the video describes better on how to achieve this newspaper printed nails.



The pictorial was mostly screenshots I took from the video~ But I think the video describes better on how to achieve this newspaper printed nails.

Tips before you start:
- Always make sure your nail polish is COMPLETELY DRY before you proceed to the next step.
- Hold the newspaper cutting firmly to avoid blurry words.
- Cut out parts of the newspaper with letters filling the entire cutting to avoid having blank spaces in between.
-Prepare everything you need before you start to avoid having messed up nails!

So I'll cut the chase and proceed to the pictorial~

Things you'll need:
1. Newspaper cuttings in squares
2. Rubbing Alcohol AKA Isopropyl Alcohol 70%
3. Base Coat
4. White/ Light grey Nail Polish
5. Top Coat
6. Palette/ Bowl

~ ~~~~~~~~♥ 

STEP 1
Apply a layer of base coat, allow to dry

STEP 2
Apply white nail polish and allow to dry completely

STEP 3
Pour ample amount of rubbing alcohol into palette for
soaking of  newspaper cutting

STEP 4
Soak newspaper cutting with wordings facing down

STEP 5
Place newspaper cutting firmly on the nail and hold it there
for 15-20 seconds. Lift it gently from the side.

STEP 6
Apply top coat to finish!

ENJOY YOUR PRETTY NAILS!!
