Nails Nail of the Day: Bright Tips May 23, 2012 by Heather | 3 Comments Follow Nails by Thi Phan TAGGED: BRIGHTS NAIL ART NAIL COLOR NOTD Heather Classic with a Twist Favorite Julep Nail Polish: Char (It Girl) Hometown: Kirkland, WA Three Things I Couldn't Live Without: iPhone, Luxe Lip and Iced Coffee Joanne Jenkins I tend to like to wear my nail colour “straight up”, one colour at a time (probably my age showing!). But I do love to see the fabulous designs and color mixes you creative types come up with. Amazing! This particular nail actually has me thinking maybe I could spend a lazy day trying to replicate it on my nails. Thanks to all of you for sharing your ideas on facebook and the blog. Joanne Jenkins Would someone be able to describe the steps I would take to try and duplicate these beautiful nail tips? I wouldn’t even know where to begin or what supplies I would need. Thanks. Stephanie Joanne, if I was to do this manicure I’d say start with the green color and just angle the brush to make each side of the V shape just over the tip of your nail where you’d have a french manicure. Then I’d use a skinny paint brush dipped in white polish or a white ‘striper’ polish that comes with a skinny brush to make the lines. And then for the fuchsia part, just do the same thing you did with the green to angle your brush and paint a V only do it down lower so the green and the white stripes still show. Make sure you let each color dry completely before doing the next step. Have fun!
