My scarlet red manicure was starting to chip, but I wasn’t in the mood to take it all off and re-polish my nails. I applied some of my favorite American Apparel polish to just the tips to cover up the chipping, and voila!
You can use any pair of contrasting colors to make a fun, fashionable French manicure. Here’s some inspiration…
And here’s how to get this effect – it’s easy I promise!
-Wait for the base color to dry completely before you put the tape on your nails. You can probably imagine what will happen if you don’t wait long enough.
-When pulling the tape off, pull away from the cuticle, i.e.; grab the tape by the edge closest to your knuckle and pull it straight off.
-Some color combination ideas: grey and yellow, blue and white, hot pink and orange, forest green and turquoise.
-Don’t forget the top coat! But actually, don’t.
Let me know if you try this and how it turns out!
