Newspaper/Love Letter nail art

I'm sure all of you have heard of newspaper nails where you using rubbing alcohol to transfer the newspaper words onto your nails. I've always wanted to try that but never had access to rubbing alcohol. Bundle Monster's newest set(third set 2012) has a newspaper/love letter looking stamp. I knew I had to do this. Sadly my plate BM-311 wasn't working but Bundle Monster kindly sent me new ones to make up for them. As soon as I received BM-311 again I got straight down to this.

Products I used:
Jordana- Base Coat
DearFace- Modern Gray 904
Konad special polish- Black
BYS- Topcoat
Orly- Fifty Four
Bundle Monster- BM-311 image plate

This picture is really just to show the shimmer/glowwy effect of Orly Fifty Four. As you can see Fifty Four is the polish bottle in my hand. This design needed a little sprucing up so I added Fifty Four. The camera didn't really pick up the effect of the polish but it looks much better in person. I applied two coats of fifty four.

I liked this design and was happy with it although the grey could have been  a little lighter. In al
 Pictures I have Orly's Fifty Four but they just aren't noticeable. This stamp requires you to scrap gently because the words are so small, if you scrap hard you will scrap all the polish from the words on the stamp

Everyone seemed very impressed when they saw this design. Someone even asked if I work in a nail salon because of this design. It all worked out very well and I'm glad I tried it.

Here you can see the shimmer a little better on my index finger. The shimmer picked up better when in a room with lights rather than in natural sun. The second and third photos was in the natural sun. My curtains pulled up so the sun can shine through and that really didn't help with the shimmer in the photos however in person when the sun shinned on my nails the shimmer was more noticeable. The first picture and this picture were taken in a room with lights and that showed the shimmer better in the photos

  4. It's really pretty, I love it! By the way, I've never tried rubbing alcohol for the actual newsprint nails but I've found that vodka works perfectly :] Just a tip!
