French manicures have slowly been having a comeback but with a twist. Long gone are the days of only seeing a pale pink polish with a pristine white tip. With this French manicure, you can embrace metallics, brushstrokes and the classic nail art design, all in one. The best thing about this mani? No need to be perfect!
To begin, start with a royal purple polish (any jewel tone shade will work too) and apply 2 coats. Allow the base colour to dry for about 5-10 minutes.
Take a metallic polish and paint a very rough French tip across the tip of your nail. Using a nail art brush, create lines below the French tip with the same metallic polish.
Using either the same metallic polish or one that it relatively similar, wipe most of the polish off of the brush from the bottle. Then dry brush this polish over the lines you created with the nail art brush. This blends everything together and adds to the brushstroke effect.
Allow the design to dry for 5-10 minutes before applying a top coat.
Polishes Used: OPI O Suzi Mio, Estee Lauder Brushed Gold, and Trust Fund Beauty Champagne Problems
