I love how french tips look! I'd rather have french tips all the time than a full on nail polish all over the nail! I think on my nails, nail polish all over it just doesn't look right! ha ha :-P I've been growing out my nails for the past month or so and I've been using Sally Hansen's Triple Strength Advanced Gel Nail fortifier ... so far I really like it! I use it as a base coat and top coat which makes your nail look super shiny! I loves it!
Okay so on to what I did....
I started off using the sally hansens then when that dried. I applied nail guides (I use nailenes) it has like 90 or so of them and they also come with the toe nail guides aswell. (another post later on, on how to use them on your nails)
applied white nail polish and I peel it off right away (nail guides) because to me I get a cleaner line and if you mess up its easy to wipe off with a q-tip & nail polish remover (the pointed q-tip ones, it makes it easier also)
I then wait for them to dry. Next up this was a little tricky because I used an old nail polish haha I wanted pink bows! ;-) to make them its easier to think of making to small hearts that meet at the ends. You can use a toothpick to help with this. But I just used the nail polish wand thats why it was tricky and the crappy nail polish! haha
I start with the middle dot first then to small dots on either side to make the bow. As I previously typed think of two hearts it will be easier. A toothpick will help move the nail polish where you want it. When it starts to look like a bow I stop. It doesn't need to look super perfect! ;-)
I let that dry then applied some glitter nail polish on top of them and a little jewel to jazz it up!
If you don't like going super crazy but want maybe one nail with some pizazz to it doing something like this is gorgeous! And its super easy!
Don't like white? Instead of white you can use any other color you want and maybe put some glitter nail polish just over top of that color! That looks just as beautiful!
Also the nail guides are super sticky! They just might take off your base coat! It did with mine so what I do is put it on my skin to take away most of the stickyness then apply it to your nail.
