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.

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.

Stitches in “Mummy Knows Best” (White), dots inside of stitches with “He’s my Boo” (Orange).
