Old Newspaper Crossword Design

To create this look I used a base coat of white nail polish.
I found a small sized cross word in the newspaper and cut it out so that I had 10 nail sized, square pieces.
Then to transfer the design onto the nail, I appliedrubbing alcohol on the back of the paper with a cotton ball and pressed it onto my nail for 3 seconds, then peeled it back and pressed it down again to get the smudged, old look.
I repeated this on every nail and finished with a clear top coat to set the newspaper ink in place.
