Hello nail lovers! Today is French Manicure with a Twist Day – day 14 of the Nail Art Challenge. If the idea is to change up the traditional french manicure – I can definitely do that. How about some pink glitter? Yes, please!
I taped my tips off using some invisible/ scotch tape. Then applied one coat of Zoya Ali. That polish is great because I really only needed one coat to make my tips hot pink. Then I slowly removed my scotch tape and applied a coat of glitter over top. This Sinful Colors glitter is called Pinky Glitter – isn’t it cute?
Naughty~ my tips are painted with an oxblood shade of Orly called Naughty.
Nice~ my pink topcoat is a pretty little bottle of Zoya flakies called Chloe.
NAUGHTY- Orly Naughty on tips
I used the scotch tape technique for this mani. Why have I not tried transparent tape til today?? I applied it on my bare nails and it was fool-proof! The taping process took just seconds…
NICE- Zoya Chloe pink flakies
I just tore off a piece (maybe an inch long) and then placed it near my nail line. Before I pressed down hard to secure the tape… I tugged up a lil bit on the sides of the tape to make a slight curve to the line. Once my tape was pressed down nice and tight, I painted a base coat on the tips and then two coats of Naughty. I was nervous when I peeled the tape off but I got a beautiful clean line! Scotch tape- I LOVE YOU. So much easier than those tiny nail guide stickers! Then to finish it off I applied a single topcoat of Zoya Chloe.

FYI~I ran out of Scotch brand tape and had to switch to Rite Aid invisible tape in the middle of my manicure. What a difference! The Scotch worked way better than the store brand! Who woulda thunkit?
