Give your current mani or pedi new life!  This nail art treatment can be applied right now.

You will need
Light colored nail polish
3×3 newspaper strips
Top Coat

How To
1. Start with a base coat and follow with your color of choice
2. Allow nails to completely dry
3. Dip nail in alcohol and follow by dipping newspaper strip in the alcohol as well
4. Immediately place damp strip on top of damp nail. Press down and be careful not to shift the newspaper.
5. Remove strip from nail after 15-30 seconds.
6. Allow the imprint to dry for atleast 5 minutes before adding your top coat.

Note: If your nail polish appears smudged after you remove the newspaper, use of a top coat like Nubar Diamont Seal & Shine  or Seche Vite will smooth it out.
