Typography Nails

Okay so I saw this picture:

 

Thankfully, it had a tutorial. In French. But hey, I can read French (and speak/understand it). Yes I am one of the few Texans that took French instead of Spanish.

Followed the very simple instructions (paint nails light color two coats, let dry, dip finger tips in Vodka then apply a piece of newsprint with lots of words on top and slowly pull off, then coat with a single layer of clear top coat) and voila!

Okay, I admit I am not a nail technician, but this was pretty easy. I just need to do something about my cuticles and dry skin. Still loving the result though. One tip, don’t wipe the vodka off your nails before you put the newspaper on top. Otherwise, you won’t have anything down. If you mess up the type on your nails, redip your tips in vodka and wipe it off then try again.

Expect to see this on my nails A LOT. I love it. What do you think?
