So it appears I'm a little obsessed with making tweaks to the average french manicure. I believe I'm becoming more coordinated with my left hand- but it's hard! This design is prety un-complicated- but I love the finished look. I think it'd be so pretty for a wedding, prom, party, etc. I'm very happy with it!
Here's how I did it:
- Apply one coat of Orly Bevery Hills Manicure in Beverly Hills Plum (obviously much more sheer than it appears in the bottle)
- Paint on your white tip with Orly French tip... I've decided I like 2 coats of this, the first can appear to be a bit thin in some places.
- NEW PRODUCT I LOVE: Right Stripe by So Easy (Silver Glitter)-- found a bunch of colors at Sally Beauty Supply. It's similar to the LA Colors Art Deco stuff- has a lovely super fine tip that's great for making stripes. I think it cost around 4 bucks... so not as cheap as LA Colors- but I can't find them anymore in stores where I live. Perhaps I'll look into finding some online. I used one coat of this stuff to make the silver stripe, overlapping the bottom part of the white tip. I went over it a couple of times as I painted it on for a more sparkly appearance.
- Then I topped it off with a top coat that it appears won't cause my colors to bleed or thin out. It's Beauty Secrets Hardener High Gloss top coat. It was only a couple bucks at Sally's and it doesn't dry fast- but my biggest concern was that it hopefully wouldn't bleed any of the colors together- and it did a good job :)
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!! I love you guys! Hope you're having a great weekend!
