    Step 4

    Brush a little bit of the nail glue on one of your nails (be sure to cover the whole nail so that the newspaper sticks well) then put the newspaper nail onto your nail. Be sure to press down all the corners! Trim any excess (nail scissors are good for this!)
    Repeat this until all your nails are newspaper-ed!

    Step 5

    Do a top coat (or two!) over the newspaper and thats it!

    they last about a week ... if you take care of them :)

You can also use nail glue instead of clear nail polish for the base coat, it can make it last longer.
