Have you ever wondered how to get nails straight from the pages of Elle Magazine? Ok, so it’s not as dramatic as it sounds but I love how fun magazine nails look and the technique is so simple.
To obtain magazine nails you will need:
- A magazine
- Nail polish (nude or white and a top coat)
- A cup of water (I kept it classy with a shot glass 😉 )
Cut up a few pages out of a magazine. You can use words or patterns to apply to your nail.
Paint your nails and make sure they are completely dry before the magazine is applied. I prefer using nude or white polish so the ink from the magazine transfers clearly.
Dip a magazine cut out in water and place it over your nail face down. Press hard on your nail for about 15 seconds so that the print fully transfers.
Remove the magazine strip and wipe off any excess ink with water. Apply a clear top coat and that’s it!
I opted to only apply the magazine to my “fashion nail” and added a midi ring for pizzazz but don’t be afraid to use the magazine nails technique on all of your nails.
Have you ever tried magazine nails?
