Before anything here’s a list of all the items you will need for this manicure.

* White or light gray nail polish is preferable but really any light color polish will do
*Clear nail polish
*Newspaper
* Rubbing alcohol
* Scissors
*A cup or a container to dip your nails in
*Nail polish remover and cotton balls in case things get messy

Now you are ready to begin!

***Make sure your nails are clean, nicely filed and painted with a clear base before starting.

Step 1: Find a page in the newspaper with minimal photos and cut small sections out,  the horoscope is great for this project

***Make sure you apply the clear top coat before moving on the next hand otherwise the print will fade if alcohol touches it.

And there you have it, an awesome newspaper print manicure. I hope you enjoyed this DIY post.
