Frequently Asked Questions about the NEWSPAPER NAIL ART:
PLEASE CLICK MORE FOR ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS!! :)
1.) Do I have to apply base coat first? - Yes. On all my nail arts, I always use base coat. It protects your nails and prevents the nail polish from chipping instantly.
2.) Should the nail polish be dried before applying the newspaper? -I found that 100% dry polish is difficult to stain since the coat has already been sealed. Wait until the nail polish is 90% dry and only 10% wet. 90% dry polish is not completely hard so it actually eats the ink and so the text will appear darker and readable.
6.) Can I use nail polish remover instead of alcohol? -NO! Nail polish remover's main purpose is to actually REMOVE the nail polish on your nails. If you use it, you won't be able to come up with a decent nail art but just a really messy one.
7.) Can I use mouth wash/wine/astringent/perfume instead of alcohol? -Love, please don't waste your money. Just use water! :)
8.) Why did you use q-tip/cotton bud? -I found that rubbing the paper actually makes the ink stain more on the nail. Pressing the newspaper on the nail for about 30 seconds is also effective if you don't want to use q-tip
I hope I was able to answer your questions! Enjoy doing your nails! ^_^ ___________________________________________
