So this mani started life as my first ever french tip mani… I finally got my hands on some of those punch pocket hole reinforcer stickers and with my new nail shape I was super excited. As you can seem my tips didn’t turn out 100% perfect but I was really happy with them none-the-less. I used OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu which is a sheer white from the now old New York Ballet sheers collection, once the base was dry I placed my stickers and used Barrym Matt White to add my tips (removing the stickers while the polish was still wet). To even this up I added another layer of OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu which just blended the tips into the nails. Now I had some major staining issues shortly before doing this manicure and in removing the stain I made a fair old mess of my cuticles – so I have to apologise for that. The cuticle on my index finger is particularly screwed up and this resulted in a pretty bad paint job but then I was nosing through my nail bits and remembered that I ha something I had been dying to use.
I picked up this full nail art piece on ebay ages ago, it came in a pack of 10 I think and I have never gotten around to using them. They require nail glue to attach, wet polish is not enough to hold this in place.
I added some holographic sparkle using a Nails Inc Mini Topcoat I have – really sorry but I have no idea what it is called but loads of brands have a similar glitter topper so I am sure you’ll find something. I didn’t want to do too much to my other nails as the index finger is now the star of the show with its bright gold and blingy rinestones.
I appreciate this may not be everyones cup of tea and for me it is not a look I would wear every day but I think this would be a killer nail look for a night out and is a fun twist on a very classic mani. Just picture: lil black dress, killer heels champagne flute in hand… I call New Years Eve mani agogo! I’ve always associated french tips with fake nails or boring manis but I feel a whole world of nail art opening up before me now! What do you think of this mani? Do you like french tips?
