Stamping: Konad’s image plate m57 with Spoiled’s Visually Slimming

Glitter topcoat: Wetnwild’s Kaleidoscope

UPDATE on DIY Nail art: Newspapers text on nails

You guys, 

It’s so much better the second time around! Duh!

You can see here that the text is so much more crisp, and no ghost image :) (If you missed the original post with the tutorial, here it is)

What i did differently were: 

- Pressed a little harder to help the ink transfer better (it’s just like stamping) 

- Not moving the paper around (like I mentioned)

- Not try to take pictures while doing it :-)

I think this design would be so much better if you do it with a friend, it’s hard to apply even pressure on every finger using your non dominant hand…but it worked out fine for me and this is another case where practice does make perfect!

Did you try this yet?

Happy Sunday!

DIY Nail art: Newspapers text on nails

Step 1: Apply base coat to protect your nails

Step 2: Paint your nail with one of the neutral colors that would act as paper, for a more vintage look, use colors with more brown tone in it. I used 2 coats.

Step 3: Let your nails dry completely.

Step 4: cut out some newspapers rectangles larger than your nails. If you want the text to be straight on your nails, make sure that at least the top line is straight)

Step 5: Poor some rubbing alcohol into a small container, enough to soak the entire nail in.

Step 6: Soak your nail (one at a time) into the alcohol for a few seconds

Step 7: Immediately apply the pre-cut strip of newspapers onto the nail and press down to transfer the image

Step 8: Repeat Step 6 & 7 to all your nails and put on your top coat

Enjoy!

Tips: To avoid some ghost images of the actual text as you see here on my ring finger, when applying the newspaper on top of the alcohol soaked nail, be sure not to move. Just press down firmly and carefully peel it off after a few seconds.
