As I've stated before, I really love french tip nails. Especially ones with pops of color at the tips. I buy pre-painted french tip nails, some classic white, some with design and color. But I find that with my short nail beds, the top of my nails end too far from the edge of the pre-painted french tips and sometimes can be seen.
One of my goals has been to duplicate a french tip look on my own.
Recently, I discovered that Revlon's Gray Suede suits my skin tone very well to mimic the flesh tone of my nail beds.
This weekend, I took out 10 Kiss Oval Active Length nail blanks, and got to work on making some colored french tips.
Here's the polishes I used:
I polished the whole nail with Gray Suede, taped off the tips with Nailene's French Tip Guides, and polished them with 2 coats of orange. White nail art polish for the dots. Removed the guides and free handed the black lines. It's not perfect, obviously, but I like it.
