BOOKISH TREATS: Book print nails
Different? Yes. Downright gorgeous? Definitely. For the fans of nail art among us, here's a little something for the book geeks - book print nails. (Squee!)
I've seen a couple of tutorials on the web recently about how to create this adorable pattern (and I swear I'll be devoting an evening to recreating it this week.) But here's a quick how-to from one Tumblr:
You will need:
a small glass of rubbing alcohol or vodka
10 strips of newspaper (bigger than your nails)
Light nail polish. white, clear, light pink, etc. Then:
Dip your nails in the alcohol for a while so the whole nail is wet
Press a strip of the newspaper on your nail and hold firmly for 30 seconds. do NOT move the strip, keep it firm.
YOU'RE DONE! Now go over with a clear coat so it'll last.
Hmm, sounds easy, but we'll see!
