Today is Manicure Monday! It is nice to be back in blogging from almost 4 days of being confined to bed because of sick. I have missed many things to do because of that and one of those is updating this blog! But thank God nothing fatal has happened and I feel well now. Back to Manicure Monday, this week’s nails are a recreation of newspaper nails. Since I didn't find any newspaper when doing it, I decided to use an old encyclopedia, which I ask permission with my boyfriend’s sister first since it was their property and not mine. And I’ll still call this news nails since it also bears information.
To do this, you will need the following: An alcohol (Preferably 70% Solution), a white nail polish, a top coat, and a newspaper or a book in my case.
First, paint all your nails white. I have used OMG Nail Polish in White Out here.
Then, in a container, add a few drops of alcohol and dip your nails on it. You can also drop it directly in your nails. Be sure to cover the whole nail.
Next, quickly pat on a small portion of the page on your nails before the alcohol gets dry. Press and hold it tight for 10 seconds. I ask help from my sister here so I can take a picture of it with my other hand, but you can always do it yourself! Thanks as always Ate Enei! ♥ (Sorry for the wrong camera focus! ;D)
Peel off the page and Tadaaaa! you have transferred the print on your white nails!
Do the same steps with the rest of your nails. I suggest using a 70% solution alcohol so the print will be clearly visible. Don't forget to add your top coat to seal in your design and have a beautiful shine!
I am thinking of cutting my nails short after making this manicure. You will see what I have decided next Monday. :)
