Newspaper Nails!

You'd be surprised what you can find when you "go down the YouTube Rabbit Hole."  I get lost in there all the time.  Doesn't really matter where I start, I always end up somewhere unexpected.  This time I started innocently with a cute puppy video, which led to a sleep pig, which led to March of the Pigs by Nine Inch Nails, which lead to marbling nails, finally resting on newspaper nails.

Go figure!

Cutenails posted this YouTube video - so easy!  I didn't have any light grey nail polish, but I decided to try it with what I did have, thinking if I liked the look, I could easily pick up a lighter grey later.

And I didn't hate it!  I think I WILL pick up that lighter grey.

Here's what it took.

Rubbing alcohol, base coat, grey polish, top coat and strips of newspaper

And here's how it looked.

Newspaper Nails! (First try - a little crooked)

It will look a lot better with slightly longer nails than I have here and definitely a lighter shade of grey.  I"ll do this one again.  So quick and easy.
