Burnt Paper Nails Tutorial

While searching the interwebs, longingly looking at all the nail art I will never be able to recreate I found an amazing tutorial for Burnt Paper Nails.

With the same technique as the original newsprint nails, this nail look takes it a step further with the added effect of burnt paper.

By soaking newspaper in alcohol and pressing it onto painted nails, you can transfer the words of the paper onto your fingertips, which is a cool effect all on its own, but by adding black marks and removing some of the polish with small brush or Q-Tip soaked in nail polish remover, you can get a aged, burnt affect that really pops!

Try this nail look for a real conversation starter!
