DIY newspaper nails

You know those pins on Pinterest that you think are cool, but you never actually try?
Well these newspaper nails are one of those pins that I finally tried with my friend Nicole, and here's how it turned out...
Not as good as the Pinterest version, but it was still pretty cool:)

To start off, I chose a cream color nail polish and did 2 coats.
 While waiting for my nails to dry, we cut out ten little pieces from the newspaper.
Note: It does NOT matter what the words say because you won't be able to read them;)
 Once our nails were dry, we poured rubbing alcohol into a small bowl or glass deep enough to completely submerge our nails.
 After dipping our nails in the alcohol, we placed the newspaper piece over each nail and held it there for 30 seconds.
 Once we peeled away the paper, the ink was left there on our nails!
Some of mine smudged a little because my nail polish was not completely dry, but it was still fun!
 We waited till the ink dried and then painted it with a top coat to hold it on there. 
What do you think?
