Glitter newspaper nails

Internet has been flaking on me all day so it's hard to get a decent post up. Here's a different kind of newsprint design that I thought of for a nail art challenge in one of the lovely FB groups I'm part of. The theme was newspaper print, so I decided to show you my spin on this theme! Lookie here!

I started out with a normal newspaper tranfer, using a 70% alcohol solution that I bought at the drugstore, and headlines from a local newspaper. I cut out some pieces of newspaper, placed them on my nails and put an alcohol moistened cotton pad to it for a couple of seconds, applying some pressure.

Et voilá! Newspaper nails, but different.

This wasn't a very good look for me, I wanted something sparkly and colorful. So I traced the black letters with nail foil glue, and dipped each nail into a different color of micro glitter when the glue was dry and really sticky. And this is the result!
