Black french tip mani


2 coats of Icing Sandy Beach, black stripe polish & Wet n Wild Black polish, silver glitter stripe polish and Top Coat. I marred the black tips before I added TC, I went over the messed up area with the black stripe polish and picked it up with my top coat, depositing it on my base polish.

Note to self; stay still until polish is dried.

This was very easy to do. Normally I would use a regular curved french tip guide to make a perfect shape on my nail, but I cannot find the ones I recently bought and suspect I threw them away by accident. I usually do a thicker, chunkier french tip, but I wanted something  different. I think this turned out lovely it was easy to do and adding the glitter makes a wavy wonky line not noticeable.


I have gotten a lot of great use from the silver stripe glitter.

stuff I used - Icing Sandy Beach, Black Strip Polish from The Bargain Shop, Wet n Wild Black, Art Deco Silver stripe glitter, and Nailene Top Coat

When my base polish was dry, I traced the outline of the black french tip area with my new black stripe polish I found at The Bargain Shop - these turned out to be good quality stripe polish - yippee!


fill in with Wet n Wild black  - best black polish EVER!

I added the silver stripe polish following the black line and added a coat of  TC,

Grrrrrrrrr - look at those black streaks!!!!!!!!

I'm not too fond of beige polish in general, but this rocks! Maybe I'll do something like that with a different base.
