When M and I were commenting on all the Spring trends earlier this year, I purposely left one out because I didn’t think I’d ever wear it. However, now that I’m seeing it pop up more and more in stores, it’s beginning to grow on me.
I’m thinking I’ll chalk my hair at least once this Spring/Summer, and we’d love to see pictures if you try any of these!
Spring floral patterns are blooming in a big way this year. From accessories, to apparel and shoes, floral patterns were popping up all over the Spring 2012 runways.
Spring neons have inspired me to add some color to the basic french manicure.
Step One: Apply a clear coat. Let it dry completely.
Step two: Apply clear tape across the tip of your nail at the diagonal you wish the color to be.
Step three: paint the tips of your nail in whatever color you would like. Let dry completely before removing tape.
Step four: Once completely dry the tape can be removed. You can then remove any excess polish from the nail/ skin around the nail with a Q-tip dabbed in nail polish remover.
Step five: Apply the white tip on the opposite side. I would not lay down tape on the nail for this because it may take off polish that is currently on the nail. If you do not have a steady hand you can remove any mistakes with a Q-tip and nail polish remover.
This manicure is fun to wear and helps remind me that Spring is just around the corner!!
Let me know if you try it out!
