Newspaper Mani!

Hello everyone! So many of you have probably seen this a million times but I still wanted to share this mani with you all! Before I started this blog, I  tried to do this mani and boy I did not know what I was doing back  then. I didn't know how to grow my nails out, I didn't know how to apply polish correctly, and I didn't know how to clean up my edges. Take a look at my pre-blogger days:

This was July 14th, 2011  way before I started this blog:



And this is now:





-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Wet Cement
-OPI: Malaysian Mist
-Rubbing Alcohol
-Newpaper
-NYC: Matte Me Crazy

  1. Wow, the difference is remarkable--and I love it with the matte top coat! I've had a newspaper sitting on my coffee table for about a month just waiting for me to give this a try. If it comes out anywhere near this well I'll consider it a huge success! :D

  6. I did this newspaper design once. I found it to be so difficult that I never did it again :) Still looks quite nice on the nails.
