We’re always browsing the net for the newest nail trends, and we stumble upon a ton of cool ideas. But newsprint nails seem to be a favorite as of late – even the adorable girls at Zooey Deschanel‘s website Hello Giggles are jumping on the trend. Contributor and co-founder Molly McAleer tested out this cutesy manicure and posted an adorable how-to of the process. We’ve recapped it here for your DIY pleasure.


You will need:
- 10 pieces of newspaper, cut into small strips large enough to cover your entire nail
- Rubbing alcohol
- Shot glass or other small vessel
- Nail polish of your choice, preferably something light like white or silver
- Top coat

I stole my first pair of platforms from the Spice Bus in 1997 when Anglophilia was all the rage. Collector of vintage bags, vinyl and kitchen appliances. My dream of becoming a butcher is momentarily on hiatus so I can teach you how to wear muumuus and apply false eyelashes. Follow me on Twitter @CrystlMeatballs.
