  1. Hi Carol!
    A like your manis!

    1. Thank you for letting me know :) I added you to the list :D

  2. There is alot of peopel doing this challenge.
    I do the challenge as well:-)


  3. Your nails look great!!!
    I just started this challenge too, I found it on Jen's blog, I'm in the middle of doing the newspaper mani.
    I love how you made your's so original!!


    1. Thank you Kelly, I will update my list and add you there :)

  4. Thanks Carole for adding me to the list!!!
    I was so upset bc I did the newspaper mani and the first 2 nails came out perfect and for some reason the rest didn't.
    I probably tried 10 different times with water, then 2 different types of alcohol, different polishes, etc.
    I the ink just wouldn't transfer all of a sudden. I still dont get it. But Im going to start the challenge next week. Hope that's okay :))

    1. Hey Kelly :) I had tried newspaper nails before just once out of curiosity and it did not work at all for me. What happened that time is that the paper seemed to be bad quality and the ink was not too bold. This time around I used a bulletin that comes in the mail, similar to the Trader Joe's ones (I don't know if you have those in your area) and I used 90% alcohol. Just come along for the ride, it's okay to hop in anytime :)

  5. Ohhh!!! Im gonna have to try that next time, I was getting so frustrated bc i worked on the first two nails I did then the other ones didn't work. I'm definitely starting this week with the half moon mani!!!


    1. Hopefully it goes well for you next time around. I hope to see your half moon mani :D
