Afternoon all! I realise this is a day late but I was taking care of a poorly boyfriend who took care of me when I was ill by painting my nails so it was worth being one day late. (Check out his mani here)
So today I have these funky french manicure nails I created as a twist on the standard ones you see every where.
They are also my entry for the OMD2 - Funky French day 14.
I chose to keep the colours similar to a french mani because I haven't worn really girlie colours for a while and I fancied feeling cute! My twist was having a different top half to the expected french manicure to sort of make it a bit more modern! Here is another twist I did a few weeks ago!
To create these I used a base of Barry M Matte White and painted two coats for an opaque finish.
I then took some striping tape and sectioned off the top parts of my nail in a sort of squashed triangle before painting a single thick layer of this Pink Seche Vite. I can't find the name but it is quite a thick polish so perfect for this method.
I peeled the tape off before the polish was dry and then sealed it in with a topcoat of my normal Seche Vite Quick Dry Topcoat.
I love it but I do kind of wish the pink wasn't quite so barbie and a little more nude….
What do you think?
