Week 5 - Newspaper Mani

I dried so hard and for such a long time to make this mani work, but I just couldn't get the hang of it. After changing method various times, trying a bunch of different alcohols and buying new alcohol and changing the base polish a bunch of times the result was still not good...


Well I did get a little more hang of it at the end and as you can see there is some writing there at least, haha! Oh well. I love newspaper manis and other people have gotten great results so I will just have to keep trying I guess.

I followed these two tutorials mostly:

  1. I've tried making a newspaper mani once, but no letters turned up on my nails, so you did way better than me. :D

  2. I ended up having to layer SV over my base color before the newspaper print would transfer. Maybe you could try that!
