French manicure is a great classic look but with a bit of creativity, it can be transformed entirely. French tip nails have so much potential for experimentation simply by combining unusual colours. Like I said here, if you’re struggling with nail art inspiration, take a classic look and add a new twist to it. In this instance, I combined mint, emerald and silver and instead of a simple French tip, I added a silver line to the emerald detail. Et voilà! An unique new design with a bit of sparkle.
Now here’s the #ThrowbackThursday story behind this manicure. The freehand Double French tip was one of the nail art techniques that I demonstrated at Nail Stars Sydney during the masterclass As you have probably guessed, the look was entirely hand painted, no stencils. If want to try this look but didn’t get a chance to attend the masterclass, don’t despair, you can always use these stencils for a flawless French manicure. This French Manicure tutorial can also be helpful.
Used: Essie No Place Like Chrome, Sea Siren Motion of the Ocean and Jealousea + Essie Good To Go top coat. I used this nail art brush to do the French tip details but if you’re after an easier solution, use these French manicure stencils.
So what do you think about this Double French tip manicure? Do you have a go-to design that you like experimenting with?
