If you look closely, there is newsprint on my fingernails! You'll probably have to click to enlarge the photo to actually see anything. I'll try to find another photo that is better. It was difficult to get a proper photograph as it turns out hand are hard take pictures of. This was a fun little spring break activity I did with a friend of mine. I can't take credit for the idea, my friend found it online. You can find some good instructions at A Pretty Penny Blog. This blog tells you not to press down too hard on the newspaper but I say go for it. The more you press on it, the better print it will make on your nail. Be careful not to move it around at all though and peel it off before the paper dries or it will stick to your nail. Other things to keep in mind is to make sure your coats under the newsprint are very dry and don't forget a topcoat or it won't stay on! Don't worry if it's not perfect though...everyone loves it anyway.
Also, you can see my beautiful engagement ring in this photo! Didn't he do a great job picking it out?
