Sometimes things just turn out that way…

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 10 - 2011

… an accidental case of perfect timing.

As the death knell sounds for the final issue of Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper The News of The World today, this newspaper manicure couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time.

China Glaze Pelican Gray provided the foundation for this one.

You can watch a tutorial on Newspaper nails below from Cutepolish, they’re SO easy!

  1. Not a huge fan of nail art as a rule, but I have to say I do quite like this! Think my problem is nail art is best on large nails and mine are stupidly small so not enough room to get enough pattern for it to make sense! Your timing is spot on!

  2. Claire says:

    Wow love this look, that Pelican Gray looks lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I need to try this! Really love it!

  4. Jamilla says:

    love it! Very Parisienne feel.

  5. LeanneOCD says:

    So cute! Might have to give this one a go ;o)

  6. Meeta says:

  7. Julia M says:

    I think I need to give this a go!

  8. /fangirls hopelessly

    Love love LOVE the effect!

  9. Tass says:

    Ahh love this, needs to get me some rubbing alcohol xx

  10. Glitterishallsorts says:

    They look amazing! And that tutorial was so simple and quick! I just bought a grey polish recently so will definitely be copying this look.

  11. Marie says:

    Where can you get rubbing alcohol? I went in every local chemist looking for it when I wanted to press a broken eyeshadow, I think they thought I was a desperate alcoholic or something.

  12. Lillian says:

    They’re so cool! Am I right thinking rubbing alcohol is the same as surgical spirit?

  13. Nicola says:

    I believe Surgical Spirit is what we call it over here – you should be able to find it in Boots and other pharmacies!

  14. Amy says:

    This looks so good! I’d try this right now, but my nails have been breaking and flaking lately so they’re tiny stubs at the moment! Was it as easy as the tutorial makes it out to be??

    • Hi Amy, I didn’t have any problems with it but someone else who’s tried it said that the alcohol melted the nail polish off. So the only thing I’d recommend is ensuring your nails are dry before doing that part x

  15. Vicki says:

    I’m definitely going to try this

  16. Sydney says:

    Really like this. Looks super cute but a bit nerdy at the same time ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Ann says:

    I love this, I’ll definitely give it a try at some point. When I saw the picture I thought it must be really hard to do, so it was awesome to see that it’s actually simple!

  18. Fashmrpaul says:

    Brilliant & novel (haha) idea!
    Love it
    Paul

  19. wow i love this nail design its fantastic .

  20. Eden-Avalon says:

    Aaah! I just saw something like this but it involved actual paper being painted onto the nails. This seems much easier – I really like it!

  21. Gauri says:

    Looks lovely!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Allyson says:

    When I saw this I just had to have it. I tried it and it worked! (http://lockerz.com/s/120794245) It wasn’t without trial and error. Don’t let that alcohol dry up on your nail or the paper will stick.

  23. Join AVON says:

    WOW that looks amazing, my nails just aren’t long enough to pull that look off…they always brake, I hate my nails lol

  24. liloo says:

    loved loved loved this manicure. perfect.
    and like you said, excellent timing xx

  25. Jacquelyn says:

    That looks amazing!! I will have to try it one day.

  26. Viridian Vega says:

    I am so late to this party but an easier way of transferring the ink (rather than dunking nails into the alcohol) is to place the newspaper onto the nail, then press a cotton ball soaked with alcohol on top, hold for a couple seconds, then remove the cotton ball and peel off newspaper.

    It works so much better. I’ve had zero transfer issues since switching to this method.
