Bedazzled French

French manicures are a rare sight on this blog. Which is strange because it's probably my favourite nail art style. My main issues with doing a french on my own nails are; 1. they are often not long enough, and 2. I struggle to make them all even (especially with one another).

But... when I saw this modified french on Oooh, Shinies! I knew I wanted to pull it off! :)

I started with two coats of OPI Don't Pretzel my Buttons. Then I carelessly painted the white tips (curving down one side) with a medium sized nail art brush using Jordana French Manicure White. While the white was still tacky I placed the blue glequins to cover up the imperfections of my paint job... topped it off with a coat of Out the Door... and voila!

I adore this look! And I could even use silver or gold glequins for a more subtle manicure :)

Both of my thumbs suffered small breaks last week so I've been keeping them out of photos.. when they grow out a bit I will even out all my nails again  :P

As simple as this is... it is one of my favourite manicures, I couldn't stop staring at my nails all day :)
