- nail polish (we used white so you could see it better, but almost any color would work)
- rubbing alcohol
- clear top coat
First paint your nails your base color. Let them thoroughly dry. Next, pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol in a small bowl or shot glass. Stick your finger in for about 5 seconds. Press a small piece of newspaper to your nail. Don't hold it for more than a couple of seconds, or it will start to stick. Pay attention to the direction of the newspaper type.
