Newsprint + Roses

Finally tried out the newspaper nails.  This is similar to something that I saw in a Japanese nail mag months ago, can’t remember which one. 

I used some movie reviews and stamped on roses.  Base colour was two coats VOV Nail Cone It Girl’s 1420A with Sally Hansen Xtreme-wear in Cherry Red, which turned out darker than I thought it would.  Stamped with Konad special polishes in Red and Green using fauxnad plate F01.  Glitter stripe was done using L.A. Colors Art Deco polish in NA903 Silver Glitter.

And here’s another one with newspaper print nails with swirly roses.

This was four or five coats of a really sheer pink - KleanColor Pink Sleepers.  More movie reviews and acrylic paints for the flowers.  I like this one more than the first.

I was just going to leave it as just the newsprint nails, but I had some nicks and smudges so I covered them up with the swirled flowers instead of redoing my nails.
