Stamped newspaper nails

Hey everyone!

Today I am showing you newspaper nails. Most people make these with real newspaper and alcohol (you put a piece of newspaper on your painted nail and soak the paper with alcohol so the ink releases unto your nails), but I was in a lazy mood ;) so I just used bm plate 311.  For the base I used Essence - The dawn is broken. I thought the little black specks would make a great paper-like background.

So what do you guys prefer? The stamped or the real newspaper way? I like the consistency in the image a stamp gives opposed to random text, but maybe I'll try it the 'real' way sometime too.

See you next week!

  3. The bad thig about the stamp is that they are too simmilar. All the nails look the same and they never do that doing it the "real"way.

    The bad thing about the "real" way is that the text will be backwards. Annoying.

    This does look good though. :D

  4. I LOVE that stamp, need this set ASAP! I think I like both. I've seen people position the stamp differently on each nail and they all look different, but this is pretty too :)

    I don't like the backwards text on the real one either :( would be fun to be able to read random words

  10. I initially wanted to do that too, but I was afraid I would get all OCD over it so I decided against it XD
