Some bearded boy, had quite the 2nd birthday weekend…quite the weekend indeed!
My goodness, I thought I was the only person in Texas who kept my Peter Paul and Mary 10 years album! Happy Birthday!
It does not get better than Peter Paul and Mary!
Hi, I found your blog on bust.com and i was wondering if i missuderstood the nail tutorial. i thought you had a more complex one, but i can’t find it. 🙂
Hi thank you for stopping by! The newsprint nails right? It’s pretty simple, and takes a few tries to perfect it.
cut squares of newsprint larger than nails.
apply a base coat of polish. (any kind of light colored nail polish would work!)
when nails are completely dry, soak them in rubbing alcohol,
then press newsprint on nail and slowly pull off.
top coat of clear nail polish to seal.
I used NYC in a New York Minute 212B Mulberry Street, Sally Hansen Double Duty base and top coat clear nail polish, and a brand brand new newspaper and finally used our never been opened Kate Spade tea cups from our wedding.
It obviously had some defects, a little of the news paper print got on my cuticles, it smudged and was a little faint. If I were to do it again I would use a really matte fast drying nail polish. BUT other than that, it is a unique and fun nail project!
