Cut out words or pictures from the newspaper, leaving enough edge for you to grasp when the transfer is complete.

Quickly dip your nail in rubbing alcohol and gently place the newspaper on the nail.

Allow the newspaper to dry just enough to transfer the ink without drying on the nail.  It is very important the newspaper does not get too dry on the nail.
