Nail art might seem difficult, but it’s not, and you can create some incredible effects yourself at home. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to make newspaper nails, which gives new meaning to having the latest information at your fingertips!

Nail art doesn’t have to be complicated, and it doesn’t need a super-steady hand. Grab a magazine or newspaper, a few supplies, and you’re all set to create this newspaper nail effect! If you are a nail art newbie, then this tutorial is a perfect way to try something new on your nails today.

Things you need:

How to do it:

  1. Paint your nails with two coats of white nail polish.
  2. Dip a piece of newspaper in a rubbing alcohol. Let the extra drip off.
  3. Now press it gently on your nail, apply even pressure throughout the nail.
  4. Peel off the paper to reveal the newspaper print!
  5. Seal it in with a coat of clear nail paint.
