Beauty Test Lab: Newsprint Nails

Advertisement

The newsprint nail combines two of the things we love most in this world — the printed word and nail art — to create one awesome design. We've already shown you how to DIY newsy nails, but we understand that not everyone has a handle of gin and a pile of WWDs under their desk (have we mentioned how much we love our office, lately?).
For those of you who aren't as fully stocked up on supplies (or who happen to be under 21), The New Black's got you covered with their new Typography Collection Weekly Journal Kit. Inside you'll find everything you need to create a wordsmith manicure — nail polish, transfer solution, newspaper, and a topcoat.
We asked our very own Christy Kurtz to take this pre-packaged kit for a spin to see how it compared to our original DIY. Despite her initial disappointment that she wasn't able to bust out the Tanqueray, Christy gamely got her guinea pig on for our latest Beauty Test Lab. Watch the video to find out how the kit fared, and decide for yourself if you can skip the liquor store the next time you want to add some text to your tips.
The New Black Typography Collection Weekly Journal Nail Polish Set, $16, available at Nordstrom.
