Nail art has completely changed since the days of simply brushing on some basic nail polish color and then changing it every once in a while. Since then, designs have become more intricate, and they require a lot more skill and technique to put on. It’s become such a big deal that there are thousands of channels on YouTube that show you step-by-step how to paint your nails in a sophisticated manner.
One of those channels is YouTuber cutepolish who, in the video below, shows you a simple beauty hack that will have your friends admiring your beautifully unique nails. They’ll be asking you, “How did you do that?” in no time.
You just need to follow a few steps to have these beautiful “newspaper nails”. First, apply a base coat that acts as protection for your nails.
Next, paint your nails with a light grey color of nail polish, and then wait a bit for them to dry.
Now all you need to do is transfer real newspaper print onto your nails. Grab some basic rubbing alcohol – which can be found at any local drug store – and pour some into a small container. Dig your nail into the rubbing alcohol for about 5 seconds, and then take your finger and press a small piece of newspaper onto the nail and hold for about 15 seconds.
Then take off the newspaper and notice how the print remains on your nails. Finally, finish your nails with a top coat that gives your nails that beautiful shine and protects the newspaper print from rubbing off.
Simple, right? Try it for yourself and impress all your friends.
