Things to Try

A tumblr all about art, inspiration, and fun things to try at home.
Wow! That Watermarbling post was insanely popular. I thought you guys might want to try out another favorite of mine. Newsprint nails! This one is really easy.
Step 1: Paint your nails white, clear or very pale color. Let them dry.
Step 2: Cut thin strips of newspaper roughly the size of your nails.
Step 3: Dip your nails or the strip of newspaper in isopropyl alcohol, also called rubbing alcohol. Vodka also works, but that just seems like a waste. Experiment to figure out which way works best for you.
Step 4: Press the strip of newsprint on your nail, hold it there for about 15 seconds. Again, experiment, You might need up to 30 seconds, or you might only need 5.
Step 5: Apply a Top Coat to lock it in place. Ta-dah! You’re all done!
