Artsy Wednesday - Newsprint Nails: Magnetic print..

Hi all :)

This week's challenge is newsprint nails.. I couldn't get my ahnds on some of that rubbing alcohol, so I found some alcohol from my shelf and used that.. It turned out okay, but it tacked up my completely dry base color a bit, so there's some smudging going on here.. haha..

But I really enjoyed this combo :)

The thumb is my fave! But the whole design has more depth IRL, thanks to the magnetic polish..

A close-up:

I've gotten a new computer (yay!), but am having trouble getting my Paint Shop Pro to work properly, so I had to use my old (and slooow) computer to edit these pics.. I'm hoping to get it to work soon, but maybe I'll be gone for a bit..

Have fun and take care =)
