Newspaper Nails

My first attempt at newspaper print.

My name's Kat and I'm addicted to nail varnish. I'm not, I just have a hell of a lot of different colours and glitter and all sorts of other such things. I am well known within my flat for having my nails change colours more often than most people change their underwear. (That and more recently trying false nails and preaching to the world about them....)

Now that I've finished possibly the worse piece of coursework known to man - and that's quite sadly

not even an exaggeration... - normal service has resumed. Painted nails, proper dinners, back to blogger and a chance to finally relax. Best way to relax? Having some me time with a bit of a pamper.

Today I tried something that I've been looking at for a while. Newspaper Nails. AND it was as easy as one, two, three.

One. Paint nails with a light colour and allow to dry completely.
Subtle but different effect for nails.
Two. Dip Nails in vodka and lay newspaper over. Peel off carefully, leaving the print.
Three. Paint on clear coat to seal in the writing.

And Voila!
