BEAUTY | A Minimal, Stripped Down French Mani

 photo loveaestheticswhiteoutlinedmoons0.jpg
clear cuff: DIY

Cutting about half of the hairs of an old nail polish brush gives you sort of a fine liner brush.
Experimented with a couple of shapes and ended up only outlining the shapes on the nails that were already there.
I think this stripped down version of a french mani turned out really cool! (honestly I really dislike the classic french mani)
Bonus points for the fact that outlining the moons and tips of a nude nail with white polish is half as quick as an actual french manicure.

I love it. I'm not a fan of the regular french mani either, but this is such a great twist, totally modern and refreshing but still minimalist and elegant at the same time. Great idea!

Where did you see this?

Nathan Moy said...

I love it Ivania! Still with such a fine brush you've got SUCH steady hands! A hand's of a surgeon! I can never do my nails, perhaps I really am a boy lol.. Btw, take a gander at my new outfit post sporting Nicholas Ghesquiere for BALENCIAGA pieces from the good ol' days, it's architectural inspired with quirky textures.
