  • Step 1

    Polish your nails, one at the time, a light colour if it's possible.

  • Step 2

    Right after your nail is dry (important! Other wise your text will not stick on the nail!) you put it in a little glass of alchohol (I used vodka 40% - I think the procent should be higher, but I don't know :)) - make sure all of your nail is covered.

  • Step 3

    Then you put on a strap of newspaper, and it's really imortant to make sure that all of the nail is covered in text. DO NOT MOVE IT! Other wise you cannot read the text.

  • Step 4

    Hold the newspaper on your nail for 30 sec., pull it off slowly.

  • Step 5

    Put on some clear nailpolish (in danish it is called "lak" - I don't know what it's called in english).

  • Step 6

    Voila! Newspaper nails! My nails now says something about Lars von Trier at Cannes Festival. I think it is really cool, it's quite easy, and I am not good at doing nails - like, at all :D Go ahead and try, if it does not work, don't put on the clear polish but just rub the ink of and try again. Enjoy!
