Newspaper Fingernails

This fun idea was popping up in my twitter feed today.  Newsprint on my fingernails?! Fun!
Alas, the article linked to another and the instructions were in French.

What's a non-French speaking girl to do? Besides learning French and risk being whisked away to the land of Eiffel?

Google translator, of course.

You'll need scissors, a nail polish color pale, with a base coat
a newspaper, alcohol (such as vodka or other) and a top coat.

Varnish your nails by applying a base coat and two coats of varnish.
Put alcohol in a glass.
Cut small pieces of newspaper large enough to cover your nails.
When your nails are dry, soak them in alcohol.

Cover your nails with small pieces of newspaper.
Remove small pieces of newsprint slowly.
Let dry and apply a layer of top coat.

Can't wait to try it!
