Enter Wonderland from Essence’s Hidden Stories collection is a beautiful off white matte polish that just calls for newspaper nails. Except I didn’t have any newspaper as we only get a digital copy so I decided to do them with Born Pretty’s BP-76 text stamping plate.

  • Essence Hidden Stories Enter Wonderland
  • Essence Rock My World
  • Essence Satin Matt top coat
  • Born Pretty BP-76 stamping plate
  • Trusty old Messy Mansion stamper

Starting with a base of two coats of the off white matte Enter Wonderland by Essence (see my review of the collection here).  Allow to dry for about ten minutes or more before stamping!  To keep the matte look, I used Essence Satin Matt top coat to both protect my base colour while stamping and again once stamped.

Then stamped the text using Essence Rock My World, a dark grey, without pressing too hard to get a more newspaper look rather than crisp text. Just touch the stamper to your nail gently while rolling across the nail.  A harder stamper works best for this.

I like that the letters have little gaps in them, makes it look like old typewriter text.  So there you have it, newspaper nails for those of us stuck in the digital age without a newspaper!
