Web exclusive: DIY newspaper nails

To create this design, you’ll need a pale nail color, 10 small pieces of torn newspaper, maybe four times the size of your nail, a cotton ball and vodka or rubbing alcohol.

First, paint your nails the pale color. Use two coats, and allow them to completely dry. Pour a small amount of vodka or rubbing alcohol in a shallow dish. Once your nails are dry, completely soak a piece of newspaper in the liquid, and press it firmly over one nail with a cotton ball. Hold it for 10 to 20 seconds. When you peel back the paper, the newsprint will have transferred onto your nail. Use the comics section if you want to get really funky.

Once the nails are dry, protect the design with a top coat.
