Instructions on print nails

I started off with a french tip. I just used white polish and painted the tips of my nails. I let it dry then I applied a thin layer of clearcoat to protect my nail. Then let it completely dry.

I dipped my nail in rubbing alcohol. Leaving it completely damp. I stuck the paper with the print to my nail applying pressure to the spot I want the print.After letting the alcohol and print dry I put another thin layer of clearcoat on the nail.

I tried different kinds of print. I found that a fresh newspaper does work best.

instructions

  1. paint your nail in the tan or white (tip or whole nail) let dry.
  2. Apply a thin layer of clearcoat to your nail so the alcohol and print doesn’t get on it. let dry.
  3. dip your entire or tip of nail (painted part) in rubbing alcohol. do not dry it leave it soaking wet.
  4. stick the printed paper to your nail and apply pressure. lift off the nail straight up to keep from smearing. let dry.
  5. apply another layer of clearcoat to the nails and let dry.
  6. using a q-tip and polish remover clean up around nails and you’re done.
