This Reverse French manicure with gold embellishments is a great evening look. Plus, it’s very easy to do and there’s plenty of room for experimentation! For instance, you can use any other colours you like, as long as they are contrasting enough, and if you’re not a fan of embellished tips, you can do embellished half moons :)
Now without further ado, let’s see the how to!
1. Paint all nails with dark blue nail polish and wait for 5 – 10 minutes for it to dry.
2. Add light blue details at the tip of each nail using nail polish brush. Wait 5 minutes more for your base to dry. While waiting clean up any polish application mistakes with angular brush, if needed.
3. Measure the Droplet nail stickers to decide which one you will use to suit your nails. Slightly larger is ok as you can trim it.
4. Using tweezers pick up the stickers and apply them on all nails.
5. Use silicone tool to smooth the surface of stickers and get rid of any bubbles underneath.
6. If required, use cuticle cutters to trim the edges to make sure the gold stickers are not sticking out beyond the painted part of each nail. Then apply 2 coats of high gloss top coat. You can leave it glossy or add 1 coat of a matte top coat for a velvety look.
