I've been part of the Artsy Wednesday group for several weeks now- each week we have a theme to create a manicure around. While so far the theme has been an idea for us to interpret, this time the subject is a technique- Newspaper nails. Are you familiar with the process? Basically, you take a piece of newspaper and dip it in rubbing alcohol. You then put this on your nail and allow the print to transfer from the paper onto your polished nail.
My manicure is very basic this week- I know some of the other ladies participating have done amazing manicures incorporating this technique, but since I have never done a manicure using this method before I wanted to keep it very pure and simple!
It was a little bit of trial and error, but once I got the technique down I was able to create a neat, crisp manicure that I really like!
I look forward to trying this technique again and moving beyond the "basic", maybe incorporating different colors, or applying the print over a water marble! I wonder if I could transfer images from the comics page?
Be sure to check out the creations of the other ladies participating in Artsy Wednesday!
