31DC2016: Day 30 Inspired by a tutorial

Today, I actually got to try out TWO tutorials. Unfortunately, I ripped a tear in my middle finger nail, so I’m currently testing out if the tea-bag fix actually keeps the tear in place. I’ll let you know about that.

The other tutorial I got to try are these cool newspaper nails. In hindsight, I wish I’d gone for a nude base color rather than white because that would make them look more like newspapers. I also gotta say – it is really hard not moving the news paper around while you’re rubbing it on the nail, so these came out a little messy.

Oh, and one more thing. If you decide to recreate this, don’t let your top coat dry completely, then the ink won’t stick to the nail. You want your top coat to be slightly tacky.

      It was hard, though! My hands kept shaking and shifting the news paper around.. This is definitely a trial-and-error technique!
