Another Simple Valentines Funky French

I did a similar look, but instead of pink and reds, I used neons. Well, I loved it so much, I wanted to do a V-Day version. For this I used the brand 10, #415 - Pinky Promise for my base, Sally Hansen Rapid Red and Sally Hansen Pronto Pink on the tips as well as Sinful's Black on Black.

  4. love it! i find it hard to do though and always mess this idea up a bit. Do you lay down a full tip of ...say red or pink and then tape it off to do the black once it has dried. It looks so even and well matched, size wise ,which might sound silly but mine often looks uneven. Thanks for tips... genius extraordinaire that you are !

  6. Thanks ladies. I was hoping this would be a great idea for nyone who wanted to do a V-Day mani, but not be over the top :P

    Emer, Yeah I did 2 coats of my base, then a coat of SV, then did full tips, alternating pink and red, and another coat of SV, then did the black, adding a final coat of SV :P Getting them even, is just all about lining then up, which can be a pain, and if you could see me, lol....I hold my hands up in every angle, making sure they look even.

  16. Thanks you guys!!

    Emer, can't wait to hear how it cmes out! Hope you enjoyed your package!!

    Nailtoshy, I would like to say it works, I mean, my middle finger has shown no signs if breaking again, but I have yet to slam it into something, lol. As of now, since I just started using it, I do love it, and I feel a smidge better knowing I have it on :P

    Jorna, Well thank ou sooo much! Feel free to respond in Dutch :) I just use Google Translate to read comments left in other languages :)

  17. hi :)

  18. Thanks Kotyonok!! I use Scotch Tape. I have a turorial up above, under my header in the 'Tutorials' tab, called How to Funky French :)

  19. Thanks! I do feel better knowing that I have it on too! lol Do I apply it just like a base or everyday on top of my mani? Does it help them grow too or just make them stronger?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just apply it as a base, just to keep them stronger. I do take Biotin though, to help with growth, and that stuff is AMAZING, IMO. I do know of other swho took it, and it made them break out :(

  21. I love the combination of two colours for tips, I may have to try it sometime!

  25. This is such a cute idea! I've never seen this before! I love your neon one! I just got Color Club's Eletro Candy collection - so I may need to try that out! And this is SO cute for V-day! Do you do the color on the tips, then tape off for the black?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks!! Yeah I first taped off the tips and did the pink and red, then re-taped and did the black :) YAY on the CC collection!!!
