Week 5: Newspaper Mani

I have never tried a newspaper mani before and had a little trouble with the newspaper I chose to use not being a good "bleeder" I guess. I don't think it turned out to bad. This was a fun mani to do and I look forward to playing around with this technique again. I totally need a gray polish though, I used a light purplish-gray creme, China Glaze Light As Air and topped it off with China Glaze Matte Magic for a more "papery" look.

  3. I've always wanted to try this one! It's on my to-do mani list :D

  4. I love the base color and i really like the matte finish too :) I have found that not all newsprint transfers the same. This week I did two different ones with two different subscriptions (Dallas and Fort Worth) and the Dallas paper that was 6 months old worked better than the 1 month old Fort Worth one :/ go figure. Maybe they all use a slightly different blend of ink?
