I found this awesome youtube video on how to make newspaper nails more than a year ago and had completely forgotten about it. My first try back then wasn’t that great, so I’ve given it another go.
The video says to use gray nail polish, and even though I really like it I, unfortunately, do not have one myself. So I went for a cheap white one from H&M – I think a light pink or beige would be fine too. Last time I ended up getting some paper stuck on my nails, so make sure you don’t keep it on for too long, but this time it came off nicely. The only bummer was that I think I put on a top coat a little too early, so the print is a little smudged. But it’s nothing you can see from a distance.
