It's week 5 of the 52 week challenge! It's going so quickly! But I'm really enjoying this challenge. This week we had to do a newspaper manicure. I've wanted to try this out since I first saw it a couple of months back but never had the time so I'm so glad it came up in the challenge, so here's how I did...
I really loved the whole idea of this weeks mani and was so excited to try it out, however I was rather disappointed :( The print on my nails was so faint you could barely see it unless you got really close to it, which most people don't :P
I used 3 coats of OPI Mermaids Tears, which I have been lemming for a while and finally got my hands on! :) I then dipped my finger in vodka (maybe this is why it didn't work so well? You're supposed to use rubbing alcohol) and covered my nail with a strip of newspaper for about 15-30 seconds depending on how long I could wait :P
This picture is more an accurate representation of the colour of Mermaids Tears, it's a beautiful muted green :)I'm really glad I got to try out a newspaper mani finally :P But I wanted a very bold print on my nails compared to this :( Have any of you done a successful newspaper mani? If so let me know what you did in the comments, I really want to try this again until I get the results I want :)
