Hello beautiful people
Happy Monday! It’s a beautiful day and I am ready to take this week by the horns! Ok maybe not that enthusiastically but I am ready for it! How was your weekend? Did you do something epic? What are you doing for the last week of April (especially that it is a short one!)
Time for another week of #52weeknailchallenge hosted by Polish Portfolio. As always, you can follow this # to see what other people are creating and you can find the list of prompts for this year below.
This week the prompt is french tip and I like it! I am a big fan of the traditional french tip but I also like when I can add a little twist to it. I like making up my own version. So let me show you what I did,
I started with clean naked nails with a base coat. I then stamped the lacey image using MoYou Bridal 08 and Mundo de Unas – White. I topcoated and let it dry. I then used tape to tape off the angels at the tip. I used Essence – English rose (from the old Colour & Go range) and then the other angle was done using Morgan Taylor – Now you see me. I took the time to topcoat each layer to make sure the tape didn’t pull up any polish that didn’t dry properly. I didn’t really want to wait for hours in between. I topcoated and voila!
I didn’t keep each nail the same when it came to the tip overlap but now that I am looking at it again, I am not sure if it makes a difference. It might’ve looked better if I just kept them all the same. What do you think? I really liked this in the end. I like the colour combination and that it is negative space without showing my complete naked stained nails. Does it qualify as a french tip? Maybe not traditionally but it is a bit of a twist to it right? Does it work for you? What do you think of the colours?
Thanks for reading,
Of course my OCD is screaming murder at the different overlaps but you probably guessed that already. I love the colors… I would definitely pick something similar if it were fall :p
Hahahahahahahahaha yeah I feel you so hard. I had hoped for a neat different look but instead I got something twitchy. I would’ve redone it too if there wasn’t so much waiting for stuff to dry involved. 😛
TBH I didn’t even see that the over laps were different, until I got to the part where you mention it!! I love it though, but how can you not consider Joyce’s OCD??? 😀
I know right. So rude to not consider Joyce’s OCD :P. I actually just commented to her that it drove me crazy and was kinda all I could see but the wait time between coats was a bore so there was no way I was going back to change it :P. Thank you though xx
