What do you need:
- bowl/cup of water
-coloured nail polish (I recommend a light colour)
Apply a base coat and a coloured nail polish. I used a white one. Wait until it's completely dry. Cut a little piece out of the newspaper. Place it on one of your nails. Make the cotton ball wet in the bowl/cup of water and press it very hard on the newspaper. Keep on pressing and after a while remove the newspaper gently. Apply a top coat so the ink will not wash off. Now you should have a newspaper nail (: It did work for me, but the ink isn't that dark as I wanted it to be. I guess it works better with alcohol, but water is a nice alternative.
I can't use my camera for a little while, so I got a picture from the internet ;)
