{Video Tutorial} Comic Strip Nail Art!

Hola Nina on the Moon Readers!
I made a this Nail Art Video Tutorial just for you all!

I came across "comic nails" one day via Cute Polish (check out Cute Polish YouTube channel as it is flooded with nail art tutorials!) & decided it would be fun to try out and guest blogging this week was the perfect opportunity! 
Hope you like it & try it out!

What you will Need: 

  1. White Nail Polish
  2. Base+Top Coat Nail Polish
  3. The Comic Section of a newspaper
  4. Scissors
  5. Rubbing Alcohol
  6. Q-tips
  7. Nail-polish remover (forgot to mention this in the video-my bad)


Here are the 10 Steps to create comic nails! 

  1. Paint two coats of WHITE Nail Polish
  2. Cut out your 10 pieces from the comic pages for your nails
  3. pour some rubbing alcohol into a small container (I actually used the cap of the rubbing alcohol as my container).
  4. Dip a strip into the rubbing alcohol & apply to your nail, pressing firmly for about 10-20 seconds. 
  5. Peel off & image should have transferred to your nail!
  6. repeat that step on all your nails.
  7. Apply a top coat to seal the image on your nail (this also prevents the ink from the comic from rubbing off).
  8. Now, pour some nail polish remover into a container.
  9. Dip a Q-tip into the nail-polish remover and clean the edges around your nail.
  10. Viola! You have yourself a comic manicure! 
Whaaaat? :D
