Newspaper Nails

Newspaper Nails
A few weeks ago I shared in this post that I learned how to do this amazing thing called "newspaper nails." Since I love words, and reading, and books, it has inevitably become my favorite manicure. Want to learn the how-to? First, gather your supplies. You will need white nail polish, newspaper, rubbing alcohol, and clear shiny polish for the top coat. Step one: Grab some newspaper and cut it into pieces big enough to cover your nails. Step two: Paint your nails white. Step three: Dip a piece of newspaper into the rubbing alcohol and saturate them well. Step four: Press the bit of newspaper on your fingernail hard for about three seconds and peel it off. Step five: Top coat time! Now admire your creation; and try not to chip your nails the first day like I all-too-often do.

Galaxy Nails Tutorial I was really excited to do this galaxy nails tutorial because they are so unique and personal to the artist doing them. There's no right or wrong! So bearing that in mind, this is more just "guidelines" than a tutorial because there is a million and one way to this style of nails! In this tutorial I used Sinful Colors in Ciao Bella (which I seem to use for every look on this site, I love it!) with a coat of Sinful Colors Frenzy over it for the base. I also used Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in White On, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, Beauty UK in Black and Lilac Girl, and for the glittery top coat I used Wet n Wild Fast Dry in Party of Five Glitters.

August 2011 This is just something that's been on my mind lately and I'd like to ask you guys what your method is. Personally, I change my nails on a daily basis. I like them to somewhat match/coordinate with my clothing. (Remember I'm a single woman with no kids, so I have all the free time in the world to do this.) When I've taken off my polish and am planning what to wear for the next day, I'll do some swatches of new polishes, or I'll experiment with crazier nail art. That's when I will try out different things that might be too bold for me to wear out to work.
