A Classic French Tip …. or Flair for the Dramatic

Just like the little black dress never goes out of fashion, always looks top cut in-style so is the well known Natural French Tip. This look can be achieved by carefully creating a smile line on the free edge of the nail using any choice of color. For a more natural look stick with colors in the white and cremes with a nude or light pink/peach for the rest of the nail. In this Nail Art Demo I will show you how to do a Natural French Tip.

Not a classic chick not a problem…. For a more bold dramatic pop pick contrasting colors that are bright, dark, etc… Here are some examples. If you do not have a very steady hand, there are some simple and affordable ways to achieve that crisp perfect curve of a smile line… such has stickers, guides, stencils and even stamps( you will also need the Stamper & Stamping Polish). Or just leave it to the pro’s who love what they do to give you the perfect french tip that will add a great smile to your face value.

Hallo-licious Nail Designs, Tip Tricks, and instant Nail Art

Nail art is one of many ways to express ourselves, share the art of our uniqueness. Holidays are a time when we go outside our normal comfort zone and try new things. So I am going to share with you some Tricks & Tips on how to create your own Nail Designs. Halloween Polka Dot Party Demo. In this demo I used China Glaze Polishes including…Black/Liquid Leather,1st color purple/Grape Juice, Orange-Coral/Thataway, Fun Green/Cha Cha Cha, Beautiful White Shimmer with Gold Accent/White Cap. Using these colors will allow you to create the exact look, feel free to play with colors and just have fun with it. You can use this technique/pattern to create fun nails for other times of the year as well. The other supplies I recommend having are a dotter tool and small post it pad for placing the polish beads on.

Want some Boo-tiful Halloween Nails try these fun styles out using your doter tool and OPI’S Spookettes Mini Nail Lacquer collection . Instead of Purple which is from the Tattoo Ta-Boo OPI Mini Collection you will be using the Green Zom-Body to love from the Spookettes collection. Or I recommend using OPI. If ya love purple than I would recommend one of these 3 fav shades, Purple with a purpose, OPI Ink, or DS Temptation.

-EYES ON YOU-Two Coats of the OPI Purple of your choice or Green Glow in the Dark “Zom-Body to love”. Large dots in “Mummy Knows Best” (White), Smaller dots in “I only Date Werewolves” (black), It’s that simple.

-TIP OR TREAT- Two coats of “He’s my Boo” (Orange) Carefully create french tip line on tip of nail using “I only Date Werewolves” (black) & also at the top of the nail near the cuticle using your dotter tool make circles/dots.

-BE MINE, FRANKENSTEIN- Two coats of the OPI Purple of your choice or Green Glow in the Dark “Zom-Body to love”. Stitches in “Mummy Knows Best” (White), dots inside of stitches with “He’s my Boo” (Orange). Now you’ve got your creative juices unraveling and electrified have fun trying your own designs… And remember there is no such thing as “Corny” only artistic ..unless your creating candy corn nails.
