Week #4

Time to show you our own CONTRAST NAIL experimentation (more to come, rest assured)

WHAT WE USED:

L-R:

Some manky old French Manicure coat РRimmel, seriously vintage

Rimmel Nail Tip Whitener

Rimmel 60 seconds (610 Pompous)

Black striping brush – eBay

Pink neon – eBay

Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat

Step #1

As you can see – the deliberate mistake here is that I forgot the contrast nail! Otherwise, begin with the French manicure pink. No need to go right to the top as they will obviously be white. Then begin the moons – dark purple (or even, Pompous).

Step #2

Add the white tips – remember, three or four vertical strokes can be more accurate than going right across your nail.

Step #3

White dividing lines between the moons and the main. As you can see, the raggediest one here is the one that is SUPPOSED to be the contrast nail, anyway! Praise!

Step #5

The main colour of the Contrast Nail is added!

10/10

This has been given a perfect score. Obviously it isn’t executed with complete perfection, but in theory – the patterns, colours, shapes, etc – there is nothing wrong with this manicure. It’s funky, and fresh.

As you can see from this picture, the cheap pink colour is still quite see-through, which is a shame. That is one of the things holding it back.
