Newspaper Nail Art

I just came across this link on YouTube about newspaper mani's!! I will be sure to try this out!!

To start off take a newspaper and cut the text portions into ten strips. Make sure that they are a little longer to your nail length. Paint your nails with a clear base coat. Then you choose a light nail color(I would choose any color that would allow you to see the ink from the newspaper). Paint your nails with your chosen color. Let dry fully!! It is really important not to skip this. Allow 20-30 minutes for dry time. Then pour rubbing alcohol into a small shallow dish. Submerge a newspaper strip into the alcohol. Apply to nail gingerly. Make sure that you press the newspaper onto your nail and not rub it on. Gently pat all around your nail to ensure full coverage. Carefully peel newspaper away from nail. Repeat with other nails. Apply top coat and allow to fully dry!!

Here are some pics of various newspaper manicures:
