I decided that it was a perfect time to get my nails ready to decorate my tree on Saturday! This had me thinking about what would be the perfect design. I am not really great at doing nails; I have no artistic ability so I decided to do something easy. A colored French manicure. The next issue presents its self. I can't find my tip guides. What I ended up doing was using masking tape. As you can see it turned out really well, and masking tape is much cheaper than nail tip guides. It doesn't create the perfect shape; however, it is close enough.
The second coat should completely coat the nails evenly! Allow to dry, wrap the nails in the masking tape (or tip guides) showing the amount of tip you want. Apply the tip in a thick coat, and then allow drying time.
Once the tip is on and dry, remove the tape or guides. And start cleaning up the edges; I use an ear swab and regular strength nail polish remover to clean the edges.
Question of the day!
What type of colors are you going to use for the holiday season? What type of design if any?
