Stripe French~

*late post due to internet connection problem*

I seriously need to work on drawing lines! >< Danielle and Kae's blog on this french, i wanted to give it a try, but problem is i don't have much thin tip polish, 1 already dried up, another transparent light green with glitter is not bright enough for me on this mani, so i have to pick the last one which is purple glitter one..



Start with black french tip with 'pointer' shape..
Nails still look nice here, but......


Then the lines.... ><>can may hopefully see some improvement in the future from myself, lolx.....

My hand shakes whenever i try to really concentrate.. T.T
This is actually the re-do version, i did it with white lines using my acrylic but it looks worse cause i don't have any thinner tip brush, can't stand on the thick lines so i remove everything and start all over again..

I love your mani, especially because of the colours you have chosen. I can't believe how neat your French V tips are. Beautiful!

I think that they look great! I love how it turned out so much, I plan on trying it myself in the near future!!! I will probably screw it up though lol!

I like it, the purple glitter you used is a great color! Yeah I can't do straight thin lines either with acrylic paint beause I don't own a striper brush, must get one soon!

Very pretty. I think you did a lovely job. It's hard to do the opposite hand. I guess it just takes lots of practice.
