Cheap nail art

I tried this cool way of decorating your nails thats free and funky if you need a change :-)

1. Put on nail polish and let dry almost completely (if you leave it too long by mistake or are struggling, paint a layer of clear and try again-do it when the polish is too wet rather than too dry). 2. Dip fingernail in alcohol-basically any will do, vodka is suggested. 3. Press a strip of newspaper big enough to cover the whole nail on to your alcohol soaked nail and hold for a few seconds. 4. Pull off slowly and be really impressed with yourself. 5. Paint top coat if desired.

It might take a bit of practise and trial and error but it turns out really cool!
