Literary Nails

Hello Lovely Readers,

Today I'm going to post about something that's completely girly, but I think it's something many of you will appreciate.

We're going to talk about literary nails.

That's right.

Literary Nails.

Or in other words, nails that showcase your love of the written word while also making you look hip and fabulous.

Here's what they look like:

Here's what you'll need:

Rubbing alcohol, your choice of polish color for a base coat, clear nail polish, and 10 small clippings from a newspaper.

Step 1: Paint nails with white or gray nail polish.

Step 2: Let the paint dry completely.

Step 3: Dip you finger in rubbing alcohol for 3-5 seconds.

Step 4: Press a small piece of newspaper to your nail and press down for several seconds. Remove.

Step 5: Repeat Step 4 until all nails are done.

Step 6: Cover with clear coat.

That's it! Fantastic, right?

Your welcome. Now go forth and look geek fabulous!

  2. This is FANTASTIC. I'm totally doing this.

  3. Those are so cute! I'm going to give this a try.


  4. I want to grow my stubby nails so I can go for this look.

  5. Ohmygosh these are so fun! Now I have to find somewhere extra cool to wear them... :D

    PS Thanks for your work organizing The Writer's Voice! You rock!
