There are one billion and one different nail colors on the market, but if you're looking to decorate your digits with something a little more unique, the newsprint nails aesthetic is hot off the press.

Blogger Keira Lennox was inspired by a similar literary manicure on another website, and went on to research the steps for copying current events onto her own fingernails.

Using small newspaper clippings, two bottles of nail polish and a bowl of alcohol, the look is easily recreated. Two coats of a nude varnish should be followed by a dip in vodka, a press of the paper strips and finally a clear protective glaze. The invention of printing may not be a new medium, but these newsprint nails demonstrate a fresh idea as far as fashion's concerned.
