Looking for an unusual yet office friendly manicure idea? You’ll love this minimalist Sideways French manicure! Before I tell you more about I’d like to say a HUGE THANKS to all of you who ordered the Little Book of Nail Art and supported this project one way or another. I’m pleased to announce that all the orders have been shipped and are on their way to you. Plus, I’ve personally included some special treats in each one of them! I hope you enjoy and make sure you show me the photos ;) hashtag #mybookofnailart!
Now, the Sideways French manicure… I created it for the Say It With Polish campaign that I worked on recently and I just love the striking simplicity of the look. This manicure is a real multi-tasker! If done in neutral colours, it’s suitable for an everyday wear but if you choose the contrasting, metallics (think: gold and black) or even glitter (like this) to the mix, it becomes a fabulous evening option.
HOW-TO: to get this sideways French manicure look you can either freehand the dark blue details over the fully painted nails or for fail-proof option, use these French manicure stencils. For a step-by-step follow this nail art tutorial.
Used: Orly Nailtrition, Say It With Polish In The Nave & Savvy Blue, plus Cuccio High Gloss top coat.
