SUMMER FLORAL FRENCH MANICURETuesday, July 08, 2014
These 3D floral Nail Art Stickers from At Your Finger Tips* are the perfect way to create a summery cute manicure without spending ages painting the design on free hand. They are so easy and quick to use and look great on an array of colours and patterns. I was going to paint all of my nails with the same colour polish but as they have grown so much in the past week, I decided it was time for summer spin on the classic French Manicure.
I used the new 'Nails' polish from beauty UK in the shade Tealed with a kiss* which is such a pretty teal shade for summer and also used the Colourworks French White polish as a base on my ring finger. I also used my Rui Yang tweezers and the At Your Finger Tips 3D Nail Art Stickers.
First I painted my nails with a base coat and painted teal tips onto all of my nails except the ring finger. I painted my ring finger with the white polish as this is the base for my stripes and flowers accent nail.
I then painted my ring finger nail with a quick drying top coat and waited for that to dry before I applied my stripe nail vinyls to my ring finger in straight lines down the nail. Once I was happy with the placement of the vinyls, I painted a thick coat of the Teal polish over the whole nail and pealed them off with the tweezers before the teal polish dried.
I love how the stripes look on the ring finger with the white and teal and think the two colours looked great together. The nail vinyls are the quickest way I've found to paint stripes on my nails and I love using them.
I then chose which nail art stickers to use on my nails and started applying them with the tweezers. They come off the backing paper easily and stick down to the nails really well. I decided to curve the nail vinyls around the outside of the ring finger and use one of each design on the other nails.
I love this finished summer French manicure and think it would look really pretty on so many different colours. If the teal tips are a bit too bright for you, the nail art stickers would look gorgeous over a classic French manicure as it would look really elegant and perfect for weddings and bridal nail art.
