Need a project to keep you busy during a rainy afternoon? Try these great DIY nail design ideas!
These nails are so adorable and really simple! All you need is some newspaper, alcohol (vodka works best), and clear or light nailpolish. First, cut 10 strips of newspaper that are each big enough to cover your entire nail. Then, apply a base coat of nail polish. You can use a clear polish or light if you prefer. Just do not use a color that would be too dark for the print to show up against. After your nails have completely dried, soak them in the vodka. Press the newspaper strips against your nail making sure there are no bubbles or gaps. Peal the strip off and add a clear top coat of polish to seal it in! Boom, instant nail art!

Some colors that look great Pour whatever color you choose to use for your tips on to a flat surface, like newspaper, and dip a clean sponge eyeshadow applicator into the polish. Dab the polish on your nail concentrating on the tip and move slightly upward. Keep repeating until you get your desired effect. After the polish is dry, put a clear topcoat over your entire nail. Easy!
