ASBMF #13: The Paper Gal

Hello again !
Newspaper nails have been in my to-do list for ever but I thought it would be difficult in practice. Actually, it's super easy and so fun! I wanted a grey base but didn't have one, so I decided to franken one by mixing Wet N Wild white and black polishes. Here is Retro Pop, at two coats and without top coat.

Natural light

For the actual "newspaper" look, I cut nail size pieces of newspaper and dipped it in 70% rubbing alcohol, then pressed it on each nail for 10 seconds (make sure that your base is dry). There are tons of tutorials online to achieve this look, so please feel free to browse around and see what works best for you :) The following pictures are with top coat.

I'm so sad because the April Showers Brings May Flowers comes to its end, there is only one more theme after this one :( If you know of any challenge (fun, short, and without pressure), let me know as I will be interested to join in :) Have a great week and before you leave, please take a look at other "newspaper gals". Thanks for reading!
