Normally, I’m not much of a nail person. I’d estimate that ninety-seven percent of the time, I eschew nail polish altogether. But for some reason I am absolutely enamored with these newspaper print nails and the fact that you can totally DIY them.

They’re cute and patterned without looking tacky. Plus–OMG!–they appeal to my inner literary geek. I am so going to try this.

The instructions are in French, which I don’t speak, so I’m not entirely sure how to DIY them, but it looks like you’d do it the same way that you lift newspaper images with Silly Putty–except with the help of a base coat and alcohol.

What do you think about these nails? Is this something you’d like to try?
