What’s my fave comic book for day 30? Betty and Veronica! When I was a kid I used to collect Archie comics… but mostly the Betty and Veronica ones! Jughead and Archie are ok…. but those two girls are just too cute!
I used the newspaper nails technique with an old comic book from 1990. Lookit how cute my thumb nail ↑ came out! It’s a little pic of Betty and Veronica being buddy-buddy with their arms around each other. Of course, earlier in the storyline they were ready to pull eachother’s hair out…but I’m glad they made up in the end!
I’m really happy with my middle finger- the Betty image transferred really well! It’s cool because Betty was always my favorite! Unfortunately, the Veronica nail didn’t come out as good… but I think I didn’t press hard enough when I was transferring the image. I think the key to good newspaper nails is PRESSURE! Here’s a closeup of my Betty…
I can’t believe that tomorrow is the last day of the OMD! I think it’s cute that we all started calling it OMD. I guess it’s easier than writing out oh mon dieu it’s the rather awesome 31 day nail art challenge giveaway! I’ll tell you what though … I’ll never hear the phrase ‘oh mon dieu’ the same way! Ever again!! 😀

This is so great! What tutorial did you use to do the newspaper technique? I’ve never done it.
Cutepolish youtube vid! I think i linked to it in my post somewhere maybe…
You did….and I completely missed it. Sigh. LOL
Wow I love the way it turned out! The faded effect also reminds me of those times when newspapers don’t print their comics properly (:
Thank you!!! I’m glad that my unintentional ‘fading’ makes it look more authentic lol
Wow this is really nice! 🙂
Aw, I love Betty and Veronica 😀 This looks amazing!
Aww thank you sweetie!
Wow, this is beautiful
Thank you so much 🙂
Super cool! Now all you need is for MAC to send you a set of the Betty & Veronica polish…
wha wha what?????? I think I need those!
I’m shocked they’re not sold out! Do you have a MAC near you? Let me know if you need me to pick up anything for you 🙂
Wow! They’re really cute! I probably wouldn’t spend 17.50 on a polish though. I checked the link you kindly provided – I guess the nearest is in Albany which is an hr and 15 min north. I swear, we have nothing near me!
Wow! So creative hunni! Love it!!
Archie comics were my fave as a kid as well. I once stole one from a grocery store when I was little ( not proud of that 😦 )
We won’t speak of that then! 😉
