I love doing this! Mine came out darker, so I'm guessing I held the newspaper on longer. I also finished with a clear coat over the ink so it wouldn't smear or rub off.
I'm curious why not just leave the paper on your nails? Decoupage style?

It Would also be good if you did an undercoat, then a white/grey coat then the newspaper and then the finall coat, I've seen this some where else.

You can also use comic strips from the newspaper but comes out best of you put the white coat first.

Nice instructible

Do you mean putting the white under the color or just putting the newsprint straight on the white polish? I haven't heard this, I will have to try it! thank you!
