freeform french mani: how to

November 1, 2012 § 5 Comments

why don’t you try a fun alternative to the conventional french manicure? as much as i love + appreciate a traditional french, this one’s different, a bit more relaxed + much easier! in other words, it’s a lazy girl’s answer to a french mani!

you will need:
• two nail colors of your choice
• clear top coat
• nail polish remover + q-tips

to do:
1. prep nails by clipping, filing + buffing
2. paint nails with one of the colors + allow to dry
3. paint the tips of your nails w. the other color, in freestyle strokes {no worrying about making the arcs perfect w. this mani!}
4. allow to dry + finish w. a clear top coat
5. clean up imperfections on the skin w. q-tips dipped in remover

** i like to only paint color tips on my finger nails leaving the thumb nails w. out
* i am wearing: berry berry broadway + do you lilac it? x opi
