Newspaper Nails

Looks complicated, but its actually really easy. Here's What you'll need:

Any  light color polish
Room temperature water
10 pieces of newspaper
Top/ Base coat

                                                  Let's Begin!

Step 1: Put on a clear base coat to protect and strengthen your natural nails. Let dry
Step 2: Put a few coats of a light color like white, grey, yellow, or pink, until opaque. (Solid)
Step 3: Make sure that your nails are 100% dry before doing the next step. If they are even a little wet, the newspaper will stick. Let them dry for 15-20 minutes.
Step 4: Dip a small square of newspaper into a bowl or cup of room temperature water. Wipe off the sides so its not soaking wet.
Step 5: Carefully place newspaper onto nails ans press as hard as you can onto the paper. Without moving your finger, press onto the sides of your nail. after pressing on the newspaper for about 1 minute, lift it off. If the ink did not transfer, then you are not pressing hard enough. Do it to all your nails and let dry for a few seconds,
Step 6: You HAVE to put a top coat or the ink will smudge right off. I recommend 2 clear top coats. Let the top coat dry for 20 minutes and your done! Hope you enjoyed!
