Hello everyone,

These days I am loving trying out different nail arts. Some of them turned out to be pretty good while others turn out to be just OK. I had seen a lot of newspaper nail arts so I decided to try it once. I know sometimes nail arts look so easy but once you sit down to try them they are not that easy as we thought them to be. This newspaper nail art did not come out as I had seen it on Pinterest but I still wanted to share it with you guys. I know it is not perfect but I will be able to perfect it in a couple of more attempts. So let’s start…

Products Required:

  • A clear base coat nail paint.
  • A white or a light coloured cream nail paint.
  • Rubbing Alcohol.
  • A few English newspaper small cuttings.
  • Nail Polish Remover to clean the edges.
  • Q-Tips to clean the edges.

I will be trying it again and I am sure I will be able to perfect it the next time. Do try it out and let me know how well did your newspaper nail art turn out.
