The other day while looking through pictures on my iPad, I came across this picture from Thanksgiving:
I had seen this idea of a reverse French Manicure floating around Pinterest and MUA, and wanted to try it myself. I posted this picture on instagram and Twitter, and it was a huge success. Only I forgot to blog about it.
I couldn't for the life of me find anymore pictures of this manicure even though I know I took them, so I decided to reenact the manicure in more spring/summer appropriate colors.
This is one coat of Orly 'Dazzle' and two coats freehand of Zoya 'Phoebe.' I picked up Phoebe for $3.99 at Ulta last fall from their summer clearance.
The original manicure had a matte finish for the color coat, but I wanted to see what it looked like with a shiny top coat, so I applied one coat:
I did this manicure freehand, but you can use french manicure stickers/guides, applying them once the silver (or other color you apply first dries.)
Which do you like better, the matte coat or the shiny coat?
