Beauty and the Bodacious

Black Sparkle French Tips

How to do:

Firstly, paint your nails with a base clear coat to reduce likeliness of staining of the nail. 

Once dried, paint two coats of a neutral shade of nail polish on your nails while painting the ring finger on each hand a solid black. It is important to let the nails dry completely before the next step. I would suggest letting them dry at least an hour for a flawless outcome. 

Next, cut small strips of scotch tape in order to position them directly across the nail. Tip: If you are using scotch tape, blot each strip sticky side down on your skin in order to reduce tackiness. This will decrease the risk of imperfections of the nude base coat.

           After the polish is completely dried, remove tape. Tip: The tips of your nails do not need to be perfect because we will later blend the harsh line with glitter nail polish.

            Lastly, using a sparkle polish, blend a very abstract line across the french black tips of your nails. Finish with a clear top coat.

Colours I Used: OPI "Black Onyx", OPI "Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?", OPI "Bring On The Bling", REVLON Clear Coat.
