Nail art is very popular right now. Doing them at home yourself may seem difficult but try these newspaper nails! It costs next to nothing and they're very cute!



  • Newspaper
  • Base coat
  • White or gray nail polish
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Clear Top coat


Apply a solid basecoat to protect your nails. Dry completely.

Paint your nails white or gray. Let it dry thoroughly.

Pour a bit of rubbing alcohol into the bottle's cap. Dip nail into rubbing alcohol so entire nail is covered for about 5 seconds.

Take a small piece of newspaper. Press it, print side down, on your nail firmly for a few seconds. Peel it off carefully. The newspaper ink will be on your nails.

Gently apply a clear topcoat to protect the ink and give your nails a shine!
