In a few simple steps:
- Cut newspaper into 10 small squares
- Paint your nails in desired color and let dry (don't use top coat yet)
- Dip a newspaper square in vodka (yes, vodka) and place type side down on your nail holding for about 10 seconds. The harder and longer you press the darker the ink will appear.
- Finish off with your top coat and voila!
I used OPI in Samoan Sand as my base coat and here were my end results!
The only problem I ran into was ending up with extra ink all over my finger tips. But once my polish was dry soap and water took right care of it! Editor's note: Any flavor of vodka will work, I happened to have blueberry handy at the time!
