Make newsprint on your nails without glue - only need polish, newspaper and alcohol

Make newsprint on your nails simply with alcohol and a regular newspaper. This is so simple and doesn't need any glue. I saw this on pinterest first so it's not an original idea but on here there was no how to without using glue so credit to someone on pinterest.




  1. Step 1 1

    paint your nails with clear, neutral or white nail polish and let it dry.

  2. Step 2 2

    tear up pieces of newspaper. you can pick the words you want but they will come out backwards. make sure the pieces are enough to fit each nail but they don't need to be an exact size.

  3. Step 3 3

    this step (3) and the next step (4) will be repeated for each nail in turn.

    take the alcohol (vodka recommended) and dip your finger in it fully submerging the nail.

    then take the newspaper piece and place it over your nail and rub it on firmly for a few seconds then peel off.

  4. Step 4 4

    now your nails will look like this

  5. Step 5 5

    now add a top coat of clear nail polish to secure the design.

  6. Step 6 6

    ta da!
