It's Tuesday and time to try something new along with me! I've been seeing these super fun diagonally sweeping french tips and wanted to give it a try. Here's the end result we're going to be going for:
1)First you want to start with clean nails and get one layer of basecoat on them.
2)After that take your first color and a striping brush and make a sweep across the tip of your nail in a diagonal curve. This will guide how far down you will paint your tip.
3)Now take the same color and paint your nail up from the line to the tip. Make it nice and opaque for this look.
4)Now taking a silver polish and the same striper, cleaned off with acetone, paint a similarly curving line just inside your painted tip (accent nail pictured here).
5)Finally, using another complimentary color(I chose the shade used for the accent nail) and a dotting tool, place some dots helter skelter along the silver line.
6)Allow for some drying time and then finish off with your favorite top coat and you're all done.
Easy peasy and fun/fresh to look at. It's good to mix up old standards now and again. Another option here if you're not feelin the dots and you want to keep it more classic, omit the dotting step, and place the silver stripe right along the edge where your color meets your bare nail.
Over and out.
