Anyways!! This was my first time attempting newspaper nails, and they didn't come out tooo bad. However, the top coat smeared the ink which kind of ruins the point. I started with two coats of Star Dune by Aldo. And I realize that most people do newspaper nails with a grey base but I don't have any really light grey colors. Plus the whole newspaper part was an after thought. I was originally just wanting a nude mani-and Star Dune is my favorite nude color! After I did the two coats of that, I cut little pieces that were about the size of my nails from the newspaper. Then, I poured some alcohol into the cap from the alcohol bottle. I placed a piece of newspaper onto one nail at a time and dabbed a finger from the opposite hand into the alcohol then pressed and held it onto the newspaper nail. This seemed to work better than submerging the whole piece of newspaper into alcohol and trying to get the words to come off on my nails. Sorry I don't have pictures of all the steps!

|See how the ink is smeared? :(|
|They're all smeared. But look at my ring finger! It was a little man! Haha.|
