Water marble and newsprint nails

This past weekend the girls and I tried a couple nail art techniques.
I painted their nails using the water marble trick. {You can learn how to do it here.}

It was kind of hard and tedious but the end result was cool and the girls loved it!
I put newspaper print on my nails! It was simple – paint nails a base color. Once they dry, dip them in Vodka, then place a piece of newspaper overtop. I squeezed down a little bit, then peeled it off. On some of my nails I had to do it twice because the print didn’t transfer the first time. Put a clear top coat on after the newsprint is dry.{Vodka is the best alcohol to use – I tried using amaretto and it didn’t work that well!} 
I found it really difficult to get good photos of my nails – but at least with these pics you get the idea!

I transferred a teeny part of the crossword puzzle key onto one of my nails!
