A French Manicure is a classic, subtle and neutral look, but you don’t have to restrict yourself to the classic french tip, instead you can create a Blue Polka Dot French Manicure.
A French Manicure is one of my favourite looks, but sometimes the classic look can get a bit boring or not suit the occasion. An easy way for me to make my manicure a bit more fun is to add some polka dots to my french tips. For this look I decided to take one of my favourite vibrant Essence The Gel Nail Polishes and combine it with a white polka dot. With the weather being so gloomy at the moment I felt like adding a bit of colour to my life! Here is how you can create this easy polka dot french manicure:
Step 1 – Using scotch tape create a curve around the tip of your nail.
Step 2 – Paint the tip of your nail using your vibrant nail polish and let it dry well.
Step 3 – Once your nail polish is dry, carefully remove the tape.
Step 4 – Take a top coat (or in my case a very light pink) and paint it over your nail. This compliments the negative space manicure and gives it a well rounded look.
Step 5 – Take your dotting tool (or bobby pin) and create polka dots on the tip of your nails. Be careful not to make the polka dots too wet, as that will take long to dry.
What I used:
Blue Nail Polish: Essence The Gel Nail Polish 40 play with my mint
White Nail Polish: Charlie Revlon Sheer White
Top Coat Nail Polish: Essence Soda Pop & Candy Shop Nail Candies
Tools: Essence Nail art DUO Stylist & Scotch Tape
And this look is truly that easy and you need no professional tools to create it! I would really love to hear what you thought of this look so please leave me a comment below.
