Funky French Manicure

French manicures are one of my favourite looks to wear on my nails, but creating that straight tip can be challenging if you’re freehanding it. Sure, you can use tape, but that means waiting for your base colour to dry which can be annoying if you’re getting ready to go out! This tutorial will show you a different way of recreating the same sophisticated look of a French manicure, but without the need for waiting or a straight line!

Supplies:

Black nail art striper/Black nail art pen

Using the purple polish, paint just the corner tip of your nail.

Paint the other corner to make a “V” in the center of your nail.

Continue to make “Vs” on all other nails. I wanted to spice up my nails with a *pop* of colour so I decided to use the fuchsia polish on my accent nail!
Then use your black nail art striper to outline the "Vs". This will give your new French tips a more "polished" look.
