comic strip nails.

Newspaper nails was SO last week. How about this hot nail art. Same idea, different look. Comic strip nails. 

Now that you have seen the pictures and saw how AWESOME they look. Let me tell you how to do them.

What you need.
Rubbing alcohol.
White or nude nail polish.
Ten strips of the comics (make sure to choose the cutest cartoons).
Top Coat.
Small cup. (You put the alcohol in this, if you didn't know lol.)

What you have to do. 
1. Paint nails a nude/white color and let dry. 
2. Dip the comic strip cartoon in the alcohol for 2-3 seconds. 
3. Press the paper firmly on nail for 30 seconds. 
4. Carefully peel strip off.
5. Apply top coat.

That's it! Easy. Try it and let me know how it turns out, I'm totally open for pics too. :)

These are my toes. I just thought that I would post this on here to show those of you who don't know what the shatter looks like, since you were all interested in my other nail post. It's cuuuuute. :)

And Bug just decided to make a cameo on my post. I hope you don't mind. ;)

  6. Aw man, you beat me to it. ;] Ever since the first newspaper nails tutorial, I've thought about doing comic strip nails but haven't gone out to buy some pale nail polish. I like this! Especially the Garfield one, lol. Also, here's a tip; if you use almond extract instead of rubbing alcohol, the print will turn out darker! Not to mention it smells somewhat glorious. ;D



  7. Thanks for the sweet comment! I really like the comic strip nails, what a unique and cool idea!

    I also really love the cute little mustache in your header. Adorable.
