Step one is to gather all of your supplies. You will need a light colored polish, rubbing alcohol, a small glass and a few newspaper clippings. Paint your nails and let them COMPLETELY dry. I gave my nails a few coats of polish so it took them about 20 minutes to be totally dry. Don't worry though, you can do step 2 while you wait! Well, go on. Read ahead!
While you are waiting on your nails to dry, cut your newspaper clippings into small squares and pour alcohol into your glass. The clippings should be big enough to completely cover your nails but not too big.
Dip your fingers (individually) into the alcohol and leave them in there for about 30 seconds. Next, place a square of newspaper onto your finger and press to make sure it's flat across the entire surface of your nail. This is about the time where you will have an awful itch but don't scratch. Don't sneeze. Don't move. Even if you mess up with the placement don't move. Don't move!
Finally, give your nail one last little rub, say a quick prayer and pull the paper off! So cool, right???? I know!! The last step is to paint a clear coat of polish over each nail, let them dry and take those amazing nails out on the town!
Please, do not judge my poor, dry fingers. I lotion them every single night but they still look like this. Sigh. Let me know how your nails turn out!
