Step right up, step right up!! I feel like a carnival barker...and I am beyond ecstatic about this week. Now, before we get to the pictures, keep in mind this is not perfect work. And, I need to give credit where credit is due. Last week, Lisa @ LOZLOSA posted a FANTASTIC "newspaper" mani, with instructions (link to it HERE). I loved this enough to try it this week.
Like I said, not perfect. I was nervous because of the images I picked - very black heavy. And a LOT of paper fiber left behind on the nail, some of which I didn't get because I was afraid of wiping off the black (yea, I should not have worried). On top of that, my allergies are into overdrive, and trying to paint my nails with a staining red while coughing and sneezing, well, lets just say I did NOT color well within the lines. I'm using my chitty cuticle pass this week. Overall, I am SOOOO pleased with this - the options are truly limitless with this technique. (The Orly red was crazy shiny, and pictures were taken at night. Weather forecast for the next 3 days - rain. I may update later if I can get something that resembles daylight, but otherwise...sorry, you will have to suffer through with the crappy photos).

Finally, colors used:
OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Orly - Unlawful
I SO wish I had better photos to do a little justice to how this turned out. Thank you so much Lisa for the inspiration.
