Copycat: Hot Off The Presses!

I like to be inspired by other's art or nail art, not copy exactly.  But when Orly gave me permission to try a look that seemed so cool and fun, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to plagiarize.  I, of course, didn't do it totally like Orly, but it's 98% their design.  The idea and how to can be found here.  It really was a lot of fun to do.  You have to be alright with the fact that the print is backwards, but if you can find some interesting prints and icons from the paper, the final look is so interesting.





I don't have Orly colors, so my substitutes are as follows: China Glaze White On White red tips layered with Salsa on bottom Ruby Pumps on top.  I used So Easy Stripe Rite Black Glitter  to line the tip color.  I used two coats of Seche Vite for shine!  Save and Print!!!!

*Edit* I did not purchase the "Clean Prep" product from Orly, I used rubbing alcohol for the transferring of the newspaper print.
