>How-To: Newsprint Manicure

I have never been good at nails. The last time I tried to do them, it took me four hours and an entire bottle of acetone (which is nail polish remover for our male friends). But I came across this post earlier, and think it might actually be something I’ll try. Wish me luck!

I saw this newsprint manicure over on The Daily Nail and thought it was adorable (especially for bookworms and word lovers like myself). I did a little Google detective work to see how to recreate it, and was surprised at how easy it is! All of the tutorials I found called for vodka or other clear distilled spirits, but we were fresh out. I used isopropyl alcohol instead, and it seemed to get the job done. I tried a quick and dirty version this afternoon to share it with you:
