I have been loving the classical French manicure lately, but felt I needed a little colour on the end of my fingers! I didn't have time to do nail art on all my nails so I opted for accent nails.
So, on all but my accent nails I applied two coats of Rimmel's funtime fuschia. Rimmel are one of my favourite nail polishes; they dry so fast & I love their wide brushes! Then on my accent nails I applied a white base coat. When the base coat was completely dry I applied thin strips of masking tape to my accent nails, & then 2 coats of funtime fuschia. When the pink was dry I slowly peeled off the masking tape, leaving visible white stripes behind. Originally I applied Lead by Topshop nails for the accent base coat, but it was quite dark & the pink polish wouldn't completely cover it. To top them all off I applied a top coat of Sally Hansen's instra-dri.
It's such an easy look to create, & really livens a boring manicure :)
Have you guys tried anything like this? What colour combinations do you think work best?
