I've wanted to try a newspaper manicure ever since I knew they were possible. This was my first attempt...
|My Valentine's nails painted with Julep - Brigitte.|
Newspaper manicure stamped with Bundle Monster plate BM02.
If you want to recreate this design, follow these simple steps...
Step 1: Paint your nails white. I painted 2 coats of Brigitte.
Step 2: Cut out strips of newspaper just large enough to cover your fingernails.
Step 3: Pour rubbing alcohol in a small dish.
Step 4: Dip 1 finger into the dish long enough to ensure the fingernail is wet.
Step 5: Remove your finger from the dish and press a newspaper strip face down onto your nail for 8-10 seconds.
Step 6: Remove the newspaper strip and apply a top coat to seal the text.
Step 7: Repeat steps 4-6 on the rest of your nails.
Step 8: Choose an accent finger or 2 and stamp a kiss design. Apply more top coat to the stamped nails.
It reminds me of a love letter ❤ Will you be trying this design?
Have yourself a happy Valentine's Day if you celebrate! If not, happy Tuesday :-)
Until next time...
(Brigitte was kindly provided by Julep for me to play with)
