Newsprint French

9 Jun

This is a mani I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  I’ve been waiting for my nails to grow long enough to pull it off.  While it’s not perfect, I think the result is pretty fun.

I started a classic french manicure done with Julep Annette.  Regular newsprint is too widely spaced to fit on my french tip, so I started cutting up an old phone book as the text is more closely printed.  If you haven’t tried a newsprint mani yet, you can give it a try by following my instructions HERE.

As is customary lately, I finished off this design with Poshé.  Are you over newsprint manicures?  I still think they’re fun.  Who on Earth figured this out anyway?

    Now, see, THAT’S a cool french manicure, and I thought that really wasn’t possible anymore. Nice job! My nails will never be long enough for this, but one day I’ll try a full paper mani…I bet someone touched a paper with wet nails and voila! 🙂
