For those of us without much skill in the way of a steady hand (guilty as charged), nail art can be a tricky feat. But with a few hacks, even the most difficult designs can be made easy for the novice nail painter.
For example, in a hack we shared a while back from YouTube channel Cutepolish, we learned how to apply text to your nails using a few strips of newspaper and some rubbing alcohol. By cutting around the words you’d like to appear on your nails, you can give yourself a text manicure without the headache of a steady striper or applying stickers.
The video below shares a similarly easy but super cute way to dress up a manicure using a comic strip of your choosing and the same rubbing alcohol technique. Begin by painting your nails with a base coat and solid white polish to help your comics pop. For each nail, I recommend cutting out the face or image you’re trying to apply to your nail into a smaller, more manageable shape. Then, dip it in the rubbing alcohol and quickly apply it to your nail and press down for about 15 seconds to transfer the image.
Cover with a top coat, and there you have it!
