After seeing the fab ‘newspaper’ effect nails I had to try it out for myself!! I first read about this here. (by the way if you love nail art follow, follow, follow!) I didn’t have any vodka or surgical spirits so attempted it with white vinegar – the effect is no where near as good but it’ll do for now! I will have to remember to buy some surgical spirit to try it again properly. Here is how mine turned out :

I used George Nail polish in Frost Bite. I will attempt this again one day and hopefully achieve a better result, but I thought I’d put this up so that you can get the gist of it!

    I adore newspaper nails. These turned out pretty well considering you used vinegar! x
