Newspaper nails for literary hands

By on Nov. 17th

Whether you're having a bookish wedding or not, the newspaper nail trend is bang on. Some brides incorporate a meaningful book or text via their bouquet or a ring book, but you can put the words you love right on your nails! Check out the tutorial on how to make this look last.

  1. Use a clear basecoat.
  2. Paint your nails using a light color like white or gray.
  3. Dip your nails in rubbing alcohol for 5 seconds.
  4. Press the newspaper or page to your nail for a few seconds and then peel off slowly.
  5. Add a clear topcoat to prevent the words from rubbing off.
  6. WIN

Rumor has it that you can use plain water if you don't want to use rubbing alcohol.

Youtube user CutePolish even has a video to make this tutorial a no-brainer:
