I saw this DIY here months ago and kept forgetting about it mainly because it was in French. Well thanks to freetranslation.com I figured it out a bit but worked on it to get it just right. It is easy and gives your nails some interest. All you need is a newspaper, light polish color, base and top coat and lastly, vodka. Yes, this gives you an excuse to open the liquor cabinet midday and if you happen to shake yourself a martini while you're at it, well done!
Step one: Rip newspaper into one inch squares. Then apply base coat and two coats of polish to your nails and let dry.
Step two: Dip newspaper squares into vodka
Step three: Place onto desired nail and hold down firmly with other hand for at least 10 secs. The longer you hold and keep firm, darker the ink will transfer. Repeat on all nails.
Step four: Apply top coat and enjoy!
