You see text design everywhere; on furniture, bedding, rugs, walls, clothing, and even nails. I've been wanting to put it on my nails, but how? I remembered in middle school how we used to draw on paper and then transfer it onto our hands by licking the back of the paper, weird I know. Why did we ever do that? Anyways, I used that idea and put a newspaper over my nail and pressed water over it with a sponge. Well that didn't work, so then I thought of trying nail polish remover instead of water, and guess what?!! It worked! After all this experimenting, I found online to use almond extract or alcohol and this works great as well!
Here is the first way I did it.
You will need
You will need
- Nail polish remover
- Cottons swabs
- Newspaper or magazine
First, wrap the paper around your nail.
Second, put nail polish remover on the cotton swab and press it on your nail for about 5 seconds. (make sure the cotton swab is only damp and press the newspaper on in a rolling motion for only a second)
And there you go!
And this is another way to do it.
Things you will need.
- Rubbing Alcohol or Almond extract
- News paper
- Top coat (I used a Matte top coat)
First, dip your painted nails into the Alcohol or almond extract for 5 seconds.
Second, press a piece of newspaper over your nail.
Third, paint over the text with a top coat.
Now you should go try it!
