"Extra! Extra! Paint All About it!"
This weeks Artsy Wednesday theme is the Newspaper Manicure.
This was My first time attempting the newspaper technique..it's pretty much transferring the the ink onto your nail.
I wanted to add a little whimsy to My Mani, so I used a pink base & chose to use the Funnies. I picked The Beetle Baily Comic Strip that I've been reading since I was younger.
I first painted my nails with 2 coats of of Color Club He Loves Me, a pepto bismol colored Pink creme
When My nails were fully dried I dipped My nail in alcohol then pressed on the newspaper picture. Then carefully peel off the paper & wah lah like Magic the image appears.
Seal the image with a topcoat and Your done.
But if Your like me and need some sparkle in Your life add a coat of sparkle. I used the Genius topcoat & in person it turned my newspaper mani from black and white into full rainbow color....I tried capturing it but my camera can't stand rainbow sparkles..sorry
But You get the idea ;) join us next week for Celeb inspired Manicures.
