First French Attempt

Okay guys, so I wasn't really sure if I was even going to post this one cuz it's a pretty pathetic final product. But the colours themselves are gorgeous and I thought they at least deserved to be shared.

This is my first attempt at doing anything that remotely has a french tip. I didn't try to use any fancy techniques or anything, just free handed it with a smaller paint brush. That wasn't where my biggest problem came from. My biggest problem was actually my impatience. I didn't consider that because I'd be applying a DIFFERENT colour over my polish for the french tips that they may mix.. Oops!!!!

I used two colours for this mani. Both OPI. The yellow is called ' The It Colour' and the pink is called 'Manicurist of Seville'. I'll post seperate swatch posts to discuss the actual polish later.

See what I mean about the two colours getting mixed?
The left hand wasn't so bad.

To be completely honest, I probably will wear this manicure until it gets all chippy because I really really like the colours so that's part of why I'm posting this even though it isn't the greatest. Maybe I'll try french tips again sometime soon and use a better technique.. I've heard the circular bandaids work great!

  1. Next time you can try scotch tape if you want straight tips, but I use reinforcements because I like my nails round. I don't think it looks that bad though and those colours are very cheerful together =D I also always find that with french tips, I need to do them wider than I think I do.
