French Manicure with Matte Tips
From the brand new collection released by Essie for Fall 2014. Here’s a twist on a french manicure using a matte polish on the tips!
The base color is called Take It Outside – Essie A creamy, neutral putty shade.
All you need to do is paint 2 coats of Take It Outside by Essie over each nail and follow with 1 coat of a shiny dry fast top coat. For this manicure I used Seche Vite for my top coat. Using a thin striping brush dipped in Matte Nail polish. Apply the matte polish to the tips of each nail with one stroke. To get a straight tip I recommend using a really long thin nail art brush & hold your brush in one place while rolling each finger under the brush. I’ve included links to nail art brushes that work great for french tips below.
