Neon/Black tip Funky French.....

I love this mani!!It's a little 80's without being overkill. For this I started with 10 color #415 for the base, then did a coat of SV. When that was mostly dry, lol, I taped off my tips, and did a think coat of white on them, then went back and re-taped and did a coat of each neon, then SV. Last off, I taped off most of the neon, and painted my tips black. I just think this is such a fun look!!

The colors I used for the neons were L-R
ChG Sun Worshiper, ChG Towel Boy Toy, CC Edie & ChG Pool Party
My thumb, not pictured was Essie Limelight

  2. by the way Erica have you ever done a post on how you look after your amazing cuticles? They are always in wonderful condition. Also what was the product you mentioned on MUA which is great for getting rid of staining ?

  3. Thanks Emer, I can't say I do much for my cuticles, eeek, maybe once in a while I will slap some oil on them, and I do push them back a few times a day, lol, but I have never really had an issue with them (knock on wood). As for the staining, I had tried this Orly packet, that I found at Bed Bath & Beyond, and LOVED it. I don't recall the name, but if I see it again, I will def post about it.

    Thanks Gabrielle!!!

  4. Loved this when I saw it on MUA and still love it. A great way to use color for those who don't want to do a whole nail, huh?

  5. Thanks you guys.

    ABOP, I agree, when you don't want too much color, this is perfect. Sometimes subtlety is best :P

  8. I was wondering would a straight tip like your look good on curved nails? I hope that made sense but your nails are like filed flat and mine are filed curved so ya would straight tips look ok or should i curve the tape? oh and i love you blog i'm a 1/4th off the way through november 2010 and went through all of 2011 and december 2010 :) Sorry for rambling

  9. Just wondering - what's 10 Color #415? I like the base coat you used, but I'm not sure what you mean here. Help? Thank you!

  10. I actually just recently found your blog and my sister and I have been getting into a lot with nail art recently. I am hoping to get a Konad set one day :) We currently have a lot of Sally Hansen's nail polish and dotting tools that we use for our designs (Or tape XD) But as for this funky french with Neon, I can't wait to try it out! Now all I need are some neon colors. I have three glow-in-the-dark neon-y nail polishes ;) Maybe I'll see how they work out.
