Silver accent French
Hi, everyone. For now just a simple, but still other than others French mani. I'm not even sure if this look still counts as a French, though. But hey, it's my blog :)
I used a regular black creme for the base color and than I added the silver stripes using tape and then China Glaze's Millenium, my fave silver. I usually do it the other way round, so the silver first. That way you just need one strip of tape on each nail to create your stripe, instead of two. But when I figured that out I'd already applied the black, lol.
I like the overall look, it's really simple and still stands out. But I think I'll upgrade this mani to a more over-the-top-look. My clothing style isn't over the top at all though, it's just my nails where I allow it to be a party everyday :) So this mani will be back... ;)
Thanks for reading!
