Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by a Hobby/Interest

Hi everyone!  I'm late to Twinsie Tuesday today.  It's been a crazy few days and add jury duty on top of that, but better late than never right?

Today's theme is all about hobbies and interests besides polish.  Aside from collecting (or hoarding) polish and painting my nails, I love to read.  I always have since I learned how.  When it was bed time I'd read under the covers with a flash light, read while eating breakfast and dinner, I'd even get in trouble because I'd turn on the shower and stand there reading because I just had to get through one last chapter before getting ready for school.  I'm not quite that bad now, but I still read quite a bit.
So today's mani is "newspaper nails."

I started off with a base of OPI I'm so Vain-illa.  This one is a bit streaky, so make sure to wait between coats.  This is 3 coats.

I then cut up pieces of news paper.  Apparently I ran out of rubbing alcohol, so I had to improvise with vodka.  Just put a piece of the cut out newspaper on your nail and soak it with alcohol (or vodka).
