newspaper nails.

Hey guys! I know, so many posts coming at you all at once, but this is so great that I just couldn't wait to show you all! One of my lovely readers left a comment, which I am kinda sad that I can't credit them because they commented under "Anonymous", and told me about this wonderful nail idea! I tried it out the day after I found out. And, it is just soooo easy and quick to do, that you guys can do it at home! I hope you like this look just as much as I have! :) 

Take a look:

Please excuse the cut-off, I was going to go to soccer practice. :)

Now that I have shown you the pictures, here are the directions. :) 

What you need:
Light colored nail polish (I used OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape).
Clear top coat nail polish.
Ten strips of newspaper, big enough to cover your nail.
Rubbing Alcohol (or Vodka, whateva).

What you need to do:
First: Apply a light colored nail polish on all of your nails and let it completely dry.
Second: Dip your nails in the rubbing alcohol/vodka for 5 seconds. 
Third: Take a strip of newspaper and press it firmly on your nail for 30 seconds.
Fourth: Apply a top coat.

And there you go! That is all you have to do! Easy, right? 

Oh! And you see that little green and blue ball up in the right hand corner of my blog? Could you do me a favor? Click it, and like it. That's all. 15 seconds. 

Thanks! :)
