Snowflake Nail Transfer Tutorial

By Dana Fox

Like this? Pin it!

This little nail DIY is perfect for the holidays! Right now, your newspapers are loaded with cute little winter images, like snowflakes and other festive goodness which makes this really easy. You can also achieve the same effect using any image of your choice and a laser printer (ink jets do not work). I used bits of the Christmas lights from the third photo on my thumbs!

* I forgot to mention to let the polish dry completely before doing the transfer!

It’s best to work on a light coloured polish… white works best.  You can also use an alcoholic beverage if you don’t have rubbing alcohol.

Enjoy!

    I'd never thought of doing this with images, I've only ever seen it with newspaper text. It's so cute & festive! x

    so neat! do you know if you can do red nail polish with white snowflakes?

    • https://www.blogger.com/profile/16765434513591686519 dana @ wonder forest

      that wouldn't work because the part that transfers is the ink… and there is no white ink used in print materials like newspapers or magazines.

    • https://www.blogger.com/profile/10056809738542876841 Miss Emily K.

      Ok! thanks so much for getting back to me about that :) i'm doing it in a few minutes and will send you a picture if it works for me :)

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/12507251814303479370 Emma Wright

    This is a lovely Tutorial! I want to have ago :) Perhaps Emily (Above) Could try Red nail varnish with black snowflakes? The would work wouldn't it? because there black ink printed on newspapers.

    So fun! I love newspaper nail transfers and never would have thought to look for festive stencils like snowflakes!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08833945853714704930 Arian ♡

    I don't know why but I tried this and the image didn't transfer at all! I used proper rubbing alcohol and everything…
