For my first week I tried something totally new. Newspaper mani! I hate hate hate white, and the only white I have is Pure Ice anyway so it would have been to stark so I used OPI Steady as She Rose. I figured that it would not only provide a softer background, but maybe it would give kind of an oldish look too. I didn't take pictures of my process, but I don't think you'll need them. It's pretty simple. Let's take a look before I tell you how I did it though!
|Ignore the mess :( I cleaned them in the morning.|
We left early for a bday party so I didn't get more pictures!
Doesn't that look really good? The original instructions say to let your polish dry, dip your nail in alcohol then put the paper on top for about 10 seconds. The method that worked best for me though is to paint base, let dry. Wet nails with alcohol, add paper, then cover the paper with an alcohol pad (or cotton pad soaked in alcohol) and hold tightly for 30 seconds. This gives the clearest print. It's so easy! I love love love this mani! What do you guys think? Don't forget to vote in my poll!
Oh, and what do you think of my new camera setting? I've been playing around with a bunch of them. I think this one looks the best. Is it just me or are the pictures a lot better? Let me know!
