French Tip Manicure

So I was semi-recently inspired by a video AndreasChoice uploaded.
Using band-aids on your nails to guide a line or 'tip'.
I'm not sure why this idea never struck me before.. but I never wanted to buy the guides themselves. I considered using tape but that's so straight, and I like a little curve whenever I paint tips on my nails.
This was my first try doing it and it did get a bit messy and i messed up some but oh well. Practice, practice, practice.

Here's what I used and how it turned out!
It's really easy, I think it's fun, and much cheaper than going to the salon.
(Not to mention you get more practice in on your own nails.)

(Optional for a more precise line)

and that's all! (:
Clearly not the best nail job.. but I had fun. Hopefully this is helpful to someone else!

Thanks for reading

  3. Oh, I've never though of using those little round band-aids! That's pretty cool. I like the way your nails turned out!
