DIY Newspaper Manicure!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Are you ready to make headlines??- pun intended. 

This weekend I tried something that I've been wanting to do for a while now- Newspaper Nails! I originally saw a picture of these nails on Pinterest and it was only a matter of time before I tried the technique and shared the 'how to' with all of my friends- you! 

All you need to create this look are the items pictured below:
*Rubbing alcohol, white or 'very' light colored nail polish, cotton balls, and newspaper. That's it!
I chose to use this gorgeous peonie pink color because it's super girly.   :)

1.) Start by applying two coats of the light colored nail polish and let it dry completely. 
2.) Next simply take a small piece of newspaper, place it on the nail (print side down), and hold a cotton ball (saturated with alcohol) over the paper and press firmly for a half a minute or so for each nail.  

The results are beautiful! Give it a try. 

Thank you for reading and following The Bee's Knees!
Just so you're all aware, I won't be posting again until this weekend or next Monday- yes that seems like an eternity, but I promise I'll return!

Have a great week.
