Newspaper Mani

Hi everyone!

Today I have a manicure I've been dying to try...a newspaper mani! I couldn't believe how simple it really was!

First, I painted three coats of OPI Stranger Tides. Then I soaked my nails in some vodka and placed small strips of newspaper on my nails. The hardest part is not moving the newspaper once it's on your nail. You peel it off and voila! If you're curious, I used the Wall Street Journal! I thought it was particularly fun to use pieces of the newspaper that werent just text, like crossword puzzles or anything a little funky!

I love my left ring finger the most because I used part of a QR code on it! This mani is so simple and easy while being so unique! I'd recommend it to anyone.

Have you ever tried this mani?

  1. I tried that for the first time this year. It's one of my favorites! I wanna try it with comic strips from the newspaper and see how that comes out!

  2. I've seen comic strips done before and they look so good!I'd be partial to peanuts :)
