Lace French Tips

March 28, 2013

Today's designs isn't something I would usually do, but I thought why not try something new, maybe experiment a little..?
So I present you with this somewhat bridal french tips manicure ;)
I normally avoid using sheer colors because I can't stand the staining to show underneath, but I saw this pretty polish by Orly and I thought to give it a try.

For this manicure I applied three coats of Orly Robo Romance: it's a sheer pale pink, somewhat nude color, with tiny rainbow glitter. The formula was good but the coverage wasn't what I was looking for. I wish the base was more creamy, that could help with the coverage. After applying 3 coats, as generous as I was, I could still see the tips. So I decided to stamp over the tips a white lace pattern. I used plate QA6 which has several lace designs on it. I topped it off with one coat of Poshe.

I normally don't do french tips, I just don't think this is my style - but this came out really delicate and pretty, really reminded me of a bride's nails. The thing is, I can't recall the last time I had a french tips mani. I can't deny this is pretty, but I just don't think this is my "thing". I'm more into colors, glitters, stamping, you know ;) Either way, I think this is still much prettier than a regular french tips design, so I thought I would share this, hopefully some of you will like it and maybe this will inspire you.

  9. It looks great, at least you can't see any staining, so if you wanted to do designs that were more like this you can use the color. Still trying to find one for me that will hide staining, whenever I start back again with nail polish.
