Newspaper Nail Art: How To

I spotted a tutorial for this on Pinterest a few months ago and couldn't wait to try it out! This is tried and tested fool proof nail art. It may be a little time consuming but it's super easy with amazing results. 
So I thought I would share the tricks & tips..

     All you need for nails like journo'Jill is:
  • Strong alcohol
  • White nail polish
  • A top coat
  • Newspaper/magazine cut outs
           Step One
    Paint nails with white nail polish (or a pale nail colour of your choice) 
    Step Two
Once the nails are dry, dip a nail into the alcohol for a few seconds
Step Three
Once you take the nail out of the alcohol, place a paper cut-out over the nail and press on it for around 30 seconds, then gently peel it off. 
       Step Four
        Repeat step two and three until all nails are done. Then follow up with a top coat, Don't worry if the transferred print looks a little faded at first - the top coat brings out the outline.
   And Voi La!

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post :)
