Week 2 of 52

Week 2: Jan. 8th - French Tip Mani

I don't know if it's allowed but I did two manis for this challenge. First I wanted something bright because I was sad about being home from vacation and the lack of sun here, then I wanted to do something I've wanted to do for a very long time.

Here is my colourful french tip. I'm not crazy about the base colour, I just didn't have any true neutral colours, this one has a bit of a shimmer and is a little too peachey to blend into my skin. I do love the tips though , wish the pink one was a little bit thicker though. 

The colours I used for this mani were, for the base colour Revlon- Peach Smoothie, all tips other than ring finger China Glaze- Turned Up Turquoise, and ring finger Essie- Punchy Pink.

Here is my good old fashioned French manicure. Please ignore what looks to be a crack in the tips, I think it's a piece of thread or something from my fluffy robe because I do my nails wearing a big fluffy robe. *blushes* For this one I knew I needed a french manicure colour so I finally bought one and really liked it. I would have preferred it look like this after one coat but instead it took two, then one on top after the white tips were painted.

The colours I used for this mani were Revlon- Sheer Petal and L'oreal- French Tip White.

I hope you are all enjoying this challenge as much as I am! :)
