DIY newspaper nails :)

Just browsed around my pinterest account today and saw something so interesting that my friend Khel and I tried it for ourselves. Here was the original pin that inspired us:

Materials needed:
rubbing alcohol


1. Put on a base coat first. 2. Paint on a light grey nail polish and let dry.(in our case, Khel had pale pink nails 

3. Dip fingernails (one at a time) into rubbing alcohol for five seconds

 4. Press a strip of newspaper big enough to cover the whole nail on to your alcohol soaked nail. 

5. Pull off slowly and be really impressed with yourself. 6. Use a Q-tip and nail polish remover to clean skin around nail area 7. Paint on a clear top coat.....gorgeous!


We just tried this for fun :) but we thought that it looks better on top of a light gray base coat. Anyway, here's what I wore yesterday:

sheer baby doll dress, Plethora, tights- lady president, woven brogues- thrifted

Me trying to show my shoes on the webcam, haha! (fail :P)
