Join in the fun by linking up with Mimi from Lipgloss and Binky and Lynn from LALynnsShoppe for their Manicure Monday!
This week’s mani was inspired by a pic I came across on Pinterest from Ooooh, Shines! Blog. I decided to give it the old college try and recreate something similar. I started off by painting 2 coats of Essie’s Ms Smarty Pants. For my skin tone this is a great neutral.
Next I applied “Perfect Tips” french polish guide tape to the tips of my nails and placed a thin coat of black polish. After about 5 minutes polished the tips with a quick dry clear polish before I removed the tape.
Check out this cute alternative to a traditional French manicure.

Renée Chapman says
oh yes – so beautiful!
Thanks! Now let’s hope it last more than 2 days before it starts to chip (-_-) lol
Renée Chapman says
oh that is one of my pet peeves – chipping. Isn’t it all of ours though? I want to try the gel color but then again I am changing my color every few days anyhow, so why am I complaining haha
Love that color on you!
Thank you! I wish more companies would realize that “nude” polishes don’t work on all skin tones and make a variety of them so I don’t have to go searching high and low. LOL
The nude with black tips look is so chic. And that color definitely compliments your skin so well. Love the whole thing!
This is by far the most of out of the box for me and I loved how it turned out. 😀

Love it. I am still sporting a 2 week gel polish manicure….
I’m going to have to try that one week!
Now. YOU. Know. I love this… I’m going to send you a pencil so you can go all the way around.
Why thank you! I’m just trying to step up my game and be like you…LOL!

Love this. Saw it on Pinterest a few times, but never as a DYI project. I am impressed, lady!
Thank you! And I can’t wait to have more time and peruse through your blog. I love the few posts I read. 😀

I’m a big fan of nude polish and I love the black tips…I’m gonna give it a try! Woot!
I know. I’m extra late. Love this. Did you free hand the tips or did you use tape. If you free handed you’re a showoff!!!
