Hey lovelies!

EXTREMELY long time lurker, very rare poster here  Wink I've recently become nail polish obsessed, and today I tried NEWSPAPER NAIL ART!

It was so very very easy! Like, super beginner easy! I can post a tutorial if you guys like, but I pretty much did this, replacing the following:
  • Rubbing alcohol: Used 1/8 cup water mixed with 1 tablespoon acetone nail polish remover instead
  • Time: Pressed the newspaper onto my nails firmly (all around the edges of the nail, without moving the paper or it will blur) for around 30 seconds, not 10 seconds

Pictures!

Right hand (unusually better than the other one... weird):
