Do y'all remember when the nail art world had a huge debate over gradients vs. ombre?! Today I've got an ombre (moving from light to dark) of sponged gradients complete WITH newsprint in honor of this month's Digit-al Dozen theme of monochrome!! Read on to hear all about this complex grey look, which is actually really easy to do :)
I am SO pleasantly surprised with how easy newspaper nails are to do! They seem sort of UN-mess-up-able since they're a little grungy anyway. The only thing I wish I could have done differently with this manicure would be to move all the base gradients down one nail - i.e. have my ring finger gradient be the darkest one on my whole hand since you can still see the newsprint fairly well over it, but it's mostly impossible over my pinkie gradient nail >.<
