Fashion From Head To Nail Tip

"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different."

-Coco Chanel

 

An outfit is only as good as its weakest point, so when your outfit needs a little personal tough or something s little more wow, your prayers have been answered.

 


 

Newspaper Nails

Facts:

- They are fresh edgy and fun

- Far from tacky and cheap looking

- everyone you come in contact with will complement you on your totally ah-mazing nails (always a plus)

All you need:

- Vodka (or alcohol rubbing)

- Squares of newspaper bigger than your nails

-white nail polish

- clear nail polish

Instructions:

1. Paint your finger nails white and let them dry completely.

2. dip your finger in vodka for at least 30 seconds or until you feel it is right.

3. put one square of newspaper onto your nail (do not move it or else it will come out smudged) and press down hard to get a sharp black line, if you don't do that it will come out faded.

3. leave it there until all the vodka is soaked up or you can see that the ink has come off the newspaper.

4. pull off the newspaper gently and you will see the newspaper ink has printed onto your nails!

5. To finish off  give your nails a coat of clear nail polish. (there will be some newspaper print around the edges of your finger but it washes off with water)

Voila!

You can make your nails personal like i did, using your star sign and words that represent you, i also did a dove for my love of animals and a crossword to represent the nerdy side of me.
