So I have thought of a new feature for my blog, every sunday i'm going to attempt to do something and let you all have a good giggle at it. This sunday I have taken inspiration from the blogging world and went with Vodka Print nails.
Step One: Get yourself a little shot of vodka, drink it if you like... But make sure you have a shot ready for your nails.
Other important tools you'll need: some little cut up strips of newspaper,
Some cotton wool to lean on
a base coat of your choice and a clear top coat
Step Two: paint your nails like normal with your chosen shade! I went for Barry M in 308/Berry. I went in for two coats to ensure the colour was built up to a solid shade.
Step Three: Dip your nails in the vodka, and then stick a little strip on your nail. I then painted a little vodka onto the back using an old blending brush.
Step Four: Then Peel of the newspaper, I waited about a minute but I think the effect is pretty instant.
Step Five: Paint with a topcoat. This is important to keeping the newspaper print on your nails, or it will just rub straight off.
I'm really happy with thesem they look delicate and pretty and I think they give an intelligent look to my nails. I hope they don't chip off too quickly!
