A Wild Frenchie

 Hello dearies!

I have a simple frenchie to share with you today!  If you have the basics of a french manicure down, this look is pretty simple.  If the idea of giving yourself a french mani gives you hear palpitations... all I can say is practice, practice practice lol.  I've only just recently felt like my frenchie's are presentable and I've been working at it for a couple of years ;)

 Colors Used: Shimmer Polish - Irene, China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise, Sinful Colors Nail Art - Time Off

I started with a taupe base on my tips.  After getting the crescent shape that I wanted, I went back over my tips with Irene using a striping brush.  Irene is an absolute stunning glitter polish!  It's a mix of champagne, gold, silver and holo micro glitters.  I wish I could have picked up just how rainbowy this beauty is.  Trust me... it's a stunner!!

Once I had my tips the way I wanted them, I took a dotting tool and splotched out my turquoise spots.  I then used a black striper amd outline my spots.  Lastly, I top coated with Duri Miracote.

I like that this is elegant white adding a pop of fun and color!  I really love the way it turned out :)  For those who are curious, the formula on Irene does not disappoint.  As with all Shimmer's, this polish is compacted with glitter.  I only used one coat of glitter over taupe to achieve opaqueness on my tips!  Irene, along with so many other gorgeous glittering polishes, can be found in Shimmer Polish's Etsy Shop :)

Until next time!

  1. This is really cute! I love that packed in mircroglitter on your tips paired with a single "out there" accent finger.

  2. That glittery silver tip definitely adds a twist to the french mani. Love the accent with leopard print too.
