French manicure

Ever since I saw Danielle's french mani the other day, I've been wanting to try something similar. I wish I had picked some colors instead of boring black and white! Oh she also did a cute one today too, I like hers better :)


My weapons of choice: LA Colors Art Deco polish.



I didn't think to take pictures during until I was working on my right hand, so it's not as good looking. I did an offset chevron so I paint a dot on the side and use that as my center guide. I'm wearing 2 streaky coats of Essie Glamour Do, I got a couple of Sinful Colors yesterday one was a sheer pink I should've used that!


I used my white LA colors art polish it is a striper brush so super easy to draw the lines and fill in.


I forgot a step, but then I used my black art polish and made 2 brushstrokes going down, crisscrossing each other. Then I painted some dots on ring and thumbs using acrylic paint. Check out my super ghetto pack of paint lol it's all dried up I need to buy the big bottle soon! YES, that is a Strongbad coaster! We got free coasters with an order I made years ago lol. Also came with pink Homestar Runner ones, so cute!


Okay so you draw your dot dot dot with acrylic paint, I also added an extra stripe on the dotted fingers. I missed a step again! I put 1 silver bullion on each nail after this. Looking at it now, the bullion was out of place and weird, oh well!


The end.

  3. Oh Kae! I love it and I love the fact that you've used black and white. It looks bold and makes a statement. The ring finger and thumb are my favourite design and remind me of old world dresses and corsets. Love love love - will definitely give this manicure a test run xx

  6. I saw hers the other day, and it's just gorgeous! I could never do anything close to either of yours. I think yours is very beautiful and nice. I like the skinny black lines and dots.

    Wasn't it? If you use a nail art polish with a striping brush it is surprisingly easy to make lines, I never knew until I bought mine from the Dollar Tree! Thank you :)
