The new french manicure
Out of this world
Today I tried out a technique I saw on OliveCoco a couple of weeks ago called 'Newspaper Print Nails'. It went pretty well if I do say so myself and was (surprisingly) quite easy. The example was on a really pale, almost white, mint green nail. I didn't have that colour so I went for something a little darker.
It's really easy to do. All you need is some freshly painted nails and some rubbing alcohol/vodka (all I had in was Sambuca and that worked fine too). Dip them in the alcohol and then press on a piece of newspaper. Hold it there for about 10 second and voila! Nails that are hot off the press in a matter of minutes. Finish with a clear top coat.
I think it would look even cooler with print in another language...next time I go to London I'll pick up a couple of papers from Chinatown. Have a go yourselves and let me know how they went!
