Newsprint Nail Art

Hello Everyone...

Thank you so much for your comments for my nail art post - this has filled me with an aura of energy and lot of enthusiasm to do more nail art posts in future.. Today's post is a "Thank you"  to your encouragement..

I was surfing through internet for "nail art for beginners" and saw something called as news paper nail art.. It seemed top be super easy and I had read about it once on Wise She.. Wanted to give it a try and it turned out well, I had all ingredients at home luckily :)

Here is what you need:

1. A base coat
2. A beige/lighter color nail polish
3. Rubbing Alcohol
4. News paper
5. Top coat

Let's start over, these are the things that I used:

I am sorry, unable to rotate this pic.. Pls adjust

  1. Konad nail hardener as base coat
  2. Flormar nail enamel in shade 344 for the base of the nail art
  3. 2% Hydrogen peroxide - Rubbing alcohol ( you can get it from a chemist store)
  4. News paper bits
  5. Flormar top coat


Apply base coat and your base nail polish.. Go for lighter colors, lighter the color - better the print.

I applied base coat and applied 3 coats of Flormar nail enamel in shade 344

Soak your finger nails in rubbing alcohol and place the news paper bit on your nail - Press and hold for 10-20 seconds..

Initially, the impression was not very dark.. I soaked the news paper bit in rubbing alcohol and pressed it against my finger nail..

Once you are done with all your nails, let the ink dry for some time, then apply a thin coat of your Top coat.. Once it is dry, you can apply a thicker layer of your top coat..

This is how the finished manicure looks like...

I messed up a little on my index finger and redid it again, which was not perfect as well :-(

One more:

Soaking your nails in rubbing alcohol, causes a whitish layer to be formed on the skin.. Mom says, it's normal with H202 :)

Note: Please don't forget to moisturize your hands after soaking them in hydrogen peroxide solution!!
Hope you like this post, please let me know your comments - Eager to hear them..

Meet you guys in my next post..

Take care till then..
