Today I have a simple french tip to show you. The only thing I miss about having fake nails is the easy french tip when you first get them put on. That slightly translucent white tip always looks so pretty! I used Essie Feed Me as a base, taped up, painted my tips with OPI Alpine Snow and did a thin coat of SH Diamond Strength Champagne Toast over the top before doing my Seche/SHMS topcoat routine.
I really need a better pinkish overcoat for a french look… if you have one you like, please let me know! 😀
I like this look “okay” but I would really prefer a very near clear pink, non-frosty polish. This is a little too pearly for me.
Now, you may be asking “This is kind of boring… why did you do these nails?” Please, let me explain. 😉
I do my nails almost every day. I try to wear the same nails for at least 2 days but sometimes I just can’t stand it and change them daily. With alllll the things I do to my nails, people notice and often comment on them, especially my students. 🙂 My husband barely gives them a second look most of the time (which I guess is a good thing, haha, I’d be kinda concerned if he was obsessed with nails, too!) Anyway, so I asked him what he likes on nails and he said he likes french tips and “trashy red nails.” Yes, that was a quote. o.O Then he proceeded to sing part of that song “Trashy Women” by Confederate Railroad:
You should’ve seen the looks on the faces of my Dad and Mom,
When I showed up at the door with a date for the senior prom.
They said: “Well, pardon us, son, she ain’t no kid.
That’s a cocktail waitress in a Dolly Parton wig.”
I said: “I know it, dad. Ain’t she cool, That’s the kind I dig.”
Yeah, an’ I like my women just a little on the trashy side,
When they wear their clothes too tight and their hair is dyed.
Too much lipstick an’ er too much rouge,
Gets me excited, leaves me feeling confused.
An’ I like my women just a little on the trashy side.
That’s not the part he sung, but that’s my favorite verse. 😉 I don’t really love red, although I occasionally sport some red nails when they’re extra short, so I did the french tip for him this week. Maybe I’ll try some red next week… it is Christmastime after all. He never said I couldn’t put Christmas trees over the red 😉
