Instructions on print nails

I started off with a french tip. I just used white polish and painted the tips of my nails. I let it dry then I applied a thin layer of clearcoat to protect my nail. Then let it completely dry.

Different prints

I tried wax coated sales papers, plain sales papers, old book print and newspaper. I found that a fresh newspaper works the best. The print is darker and last longer. The wax coated paper print was blotchy and spotty. The regular sales paper was clearer but faded. The old book print showed up but was real lite. The fresh print newspaper was bright and clear.
