newspaper,a clear nail polish,any colorful nail polish,absolute vodka or just any alcohol of your choice

on to the steps;

1. Get a manicure and choose a light color so the newsprint will stand out. Make sure that the polish is completely dry before starting the next step.

2. Dip your nails in alcohol and wait for about 5 seconds.

3. Press the newsprint on your nails firmly for about 20 seconds (darker print is best).

And then you have your newsprint nails…:)
