Gypsy French Manicure – Mani Mondays

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails

Hey Nail Enthusiasts!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I mentioned in my previous post that I was going to see my Uncle perform in Gypsy. So of course I had to come up with a cute nail look for the special event!

I had many ideas but unfortunately time was not on my side… so I chose a simple look that worked out just perfectly.

I used Glints of Glinda NL T59 – OPI
(Spring 2013 Wizard Of Oz Collection) for the base color

Then I painted my tips with a long thin brush
and used Alpine White – OPI

Lastly covered my nails with Seche Vite – Dry Fast

Accent Nail:

I used a medium length thin paint brush and swirled the pattern on my nail with black polish.

For the dots I took a toothpick and dipped it into the black polish and dotted away… same with the white dots.

The pattern takes some time to do so a little practice on a piece of paper helps to get your design set before putting it on your nail.

I found that using a flexible thin brush with short bristles helps when painting the pattern on your nails.
A bunch of companies are now coming out with pen/brush duo’s

Nail art definitely takes practice, but having the right tools is the best way to start.
I recommend trying out the nail art duo’s from Revlon or Color Club.

It’s a great way to start practicing your nail doodles.
