News On Nails (Newspaper Nail Art)

Today I decided to spice up my nails with something different so tried a very famous and easy nail art which I have seen two-three times during surfing net.

You'll need these things for Newspaper Nail Art :

  • A light shade of nail paint
  • Top coat and base coat.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide ( Tip: Can use any alcohol source that is more liquid ).
  • Of course........, piece of Newspaper. That's it. :)

So here we begin :

1) Apply two coats of nail paint, am using a nude shade of Maybelline Coloroma. You can see in below picture that I've only applied nail paint on only two nails. This is because nail paint dries fast so start with two nails and so on.

2) Open the bottle of hydrogen peroxide and pour it in a cup or anything you prefer. I used the cap of hydrogen peroxide :D. Now when your nail paint is about to dry and still have a bit wetness, that is the time you should dip your nail in hydrogen peroxide for 5 seconds.

3) Take a piece of newspaper and press it on your nail for 10 seconds,  while doing this you can also put 2 or 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide on newspaper.

4) I have also used twitter bird on my nails. :)
5) Give time for your newspaper ink to dry on your nails, before applying topcoat. Do not forget to apply top coat otherwise your work will vanish after few minutes.

This nail art doesn't need to be perfect. If it comes out uneven, a top coat will solve the problem.

Have you ever tried newspaper nail art? How was the experience?
