L jay French tip
I haven't had a french tip in almost a year. I dread controlling that brush so perfectly that if any mistakes are made the whole nail is ruined, remove the polish, try again, and sometimes again. I was so impressed with myself though.. I did my french tip free-handed.
I started off using ESSIE BLANC on my tips, just using my eyes, no strips or liners. When i used the BLANC, believe it or not, I brushed it on the tips in a vertical motion rather than side to side. I did 2 coats of the Blanc on the tips, letting them dry COMPLETELY between each coat. After I did my 2 coats, I brushed MAYBELLINE'S EXPRESS FINISH ROSE PETAL PARADISE. The white tips do need maitenence (or atleast mine do) I use RIMMEL FRENCH WHITE TIP PRO. You could substitute the white tip pro with any white polish preferably one with a skinny "nail art" brush. I have many other ways I do french tips on my nails, I will be posting them!
