An easy and simple way to stay bang on trend!
I was inspired to create this nail art from desentoa's newspaper nails, I really like just flicking through magazines and just cutting out random things i like, so I thought I'd combine the 2 and I came up with this! Enjoy!!:)

P.S- I'd really appreciate it if you guys commented below cos this is my first project! thanks!!
