newspaper-nails

Cute Nail Trend

A lot of people love to paint their nails and toenails all year round. But now especially, when we start to default to flip-flops and sandals, painting nails can become really fun.

The “newspaper nails" is a really cute nail trend that looks professionally done, while also sophisticated and fun.

Here's how to do it:

You’ll need:

- squares of newspaper a little bigger than your nails (personalize with whatever newspaper content you want ^.^)

-rubbing alcohol in a container that you can put your fingers into

-white nail polish

-clear nail polish (optional)

1) Coat your fingernails with white nail polish. Let them dry entirely before moving on to the next step.

2) Dip one fingernail into the rubbing alcohol for about 30-40 seconds (sometimes, more time is needed)

3) Remove your finger from the alcohol and press down a square of newspaper onto that fingernail. Don’t move it after you’ve put it down! It will smudge. Leave the square on until all the rubbing alcohol on your finger has been used up or you notice the the newspaper design has transferred.

4) Repeat with each of your nails

5) Paint over with a coat of clear nail polish for a more finished look

Note: Some newspaper might stick to your nails when doing this. After your newpaper nails have dried you can wash that newspaper off with water.

Enjoy! :)

General Advice

  • try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.

  • don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…

  • Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.

  • be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?

  • “you can do it, wildcat, i believe in u” — something troy bolton said one time probably definitely

  • Smile and introduce yourself to people- whether you’re sitting next to them or have seen them in more than one of your classes. Everyone likes to make new friends (even if we’re too shy to do it most of the time).

  • Find which clubs look interesting and go to their first meetings- there’s never an obligation to join, but you might meet a lot of new friends.

  • Get advice from other students on if your classes/teachers are difficult and figure out which ones you’ll need to work the hardest in.

  • this or this. it’ll whip your ass into gear. you name a list of websites that distract you, set a timer, and bam. no more hour long study breaks. the best - or worst - part is, it can’t be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer. you just gotta wait, and if you’re going to wait, you may as well study.

  • goals. when you sit down to study, write down everything you’re going to do. then do it. aimlessly staring at your books won’t do shit.

  • something to listen to. i suggest movie scores, song covers by the vitamin string quartet

  • a queue. if you’re really obsessed with keeping your blog up to date, set aside some time, fatten up your queue, and let your blog run itself for a few days.

  • breaks. during your breaks, dance, run around, work out, go for a walk, talk to your friends, call your mom. going back on the internet is an easy way to get out of the mood, so i wouldn’t suggest it.

  • tea and coffee - if not for the caffeine, then for the feeling of cozying up with your text books and feeling studious.

  • a place to study. it doesn’t matter if it’s in a coffee house, a library, or your kitchen table. as long as your bed’s not in sight and tempting you into a nap, you’re good.

  • your mental health is more important than your grades/school work

  • you are fabulous

  • they’re probably not even paying attention when you give a presentation

  • one friend is better than no friends

  • eat a healthy lunch

  • take care of yourself

  • please stay safe

  • your mental health is more important than your grades/school work

  • I love you

Some Inspiration

More Masterposts (references for anything that wasn’t mine)

I hope you found some cool new things and I will plan on making a new master post in a few months! If a link isn’t working message me with the title of it and I’ll fix it asap or include it in the next master post.

Newspaper nails.

Went to Mitsuwa in Edgewater with the man on Sunday and picked up the 週刊NY生活, which is a free newspaper in Japanese about daily (Japanese) life in NY, published weekly. 

I found that pouring some rubbing alcohol in the cap and dabbing it onto your finger, instead of dipping, was less messy and more controlled.  Also, if you push too hard, the little paper shreds will stick on the nail and create non-consensual texture.  It’s good to push a little firmly, though, cause then the ink transfers more precisely and darker. 

I also tried to capture every part of the Japanese writing system on the span of these nails. Katakana, Hiragana, Kanji, numbers, punctuation and quotations all on my nails! Just no Romaji, oh well…

Over Deborah Lippmann Waking Up In Vegas

Music note mani! I looooved this one.

How to recreate:

1) Choose any printed paper to use as a decal (will be mirror-imaged).

2) Cut paper into nail-sized pieces.

3) Paint basecoat and underwear color.

4) Dip nail in Rubbing alcohol/vodka for ~10 seconds

5) Press paper onto nail, pat a little more solvent onto paper to make sure it is soaked through.

6) Peel up slowly like a temporary tattoo.

7) Top coat!

I’m getting awesome feed back on the picture of my nails. Some people want to know how to do it. It’s ridiculously easy to do.

You will need:
-newspaper
-rubbing alcohol
-your nail polish color of choice
-base/top coat, of course

1) Paint your nails whatever color you want and use top coat. I like to use a bright color OR something more neutral like grey or a muted pink like the one above.
2) Make sure your nails are COMPLETELY dry. I’m really bad at doing this so I usually paint my nails the night before so that when I’m ready to use the newsprint, I KNOW they’re dry. I’m very impatient. 
3) Pour the rubbing alcohol in a small container. I usually just use the cap to the alcohol bottle. Rip up your newspaper so that you have a piece for each nail.
4) Dip your nail in the rubbing alcohol and press the piece of newspaper on your nail. Make sure you’re applying even pressure and hold it down for about 20 seconds.
5) Slowly peel away the news paper and the ink should have transferred from the paper to your nail.
6) Repeat for each nail and make sure to put another layer of top coat over the ink when you’re done. This makes it darker and protects it from chips.
