Week 4 Plaid Mani

Hello All...today is the 4th week of the 52 Week Challenge...a plaid mani.  I cringed because I am not good at freehand work :(     So I went to videos on the web and did some research.
I painted my nails with a clear base coat and then 2 coats of WnW Noctournal, a deep, almost black blue.
I got out my Art Deco in white and my acrylic paint in lavender.  I opted to just do tips, I thought plaid completely covering my nails would have been too much for me !!!!


 They look much better far away...LOL.
Next week is Newspaper mani....back to the web  :(
I am just 3 followers from my first giveaway!!!  Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to run it??  I want to make it VERY simple.  I would greatly appreciate any input.  Have a great Sunday, thank you for coming by my little spot. :)

  5. CUTE! Newspaper nails are super easy. Dip your painted and dry finger into rubbing alcohol for about 10 seconds and then firmly press a piece of newspaper onto it for another 10 -20 seconds. I tried the method of soaking the paper in alcohol and then pressing, but the image didn't transfer dark enough. Good Luck!
