[NAIL] American French

We all familiar with French Manicure, easy, any pink nail polish as base coat then white nail polish as over the nail tips. But American French Manicure is almost the same except for the tips. For American French you can use any colour of nail polish for the nail tip.

This time, I will use gold nail polish for the tips. Too boring right, how about a little 3D flower? Before put on the top coat use white acrylic powder to create the simple 3D flower. I am still new to acrylic powder, looking forward for better work in the future mean need to have more practices

Stuff I used:

  • NailTek Nail Strengthener (Base Coat)
  • Essie Nail Polish in 546 (Room With A View)
  • Anna Sui Nail Art Color in 083 (Gold)
  • Essie Super Duper Top Coat
  • Nubar Acrylic Powder
  • Nubar Monomer
  • Sculpture Brush

I will use this design for Plusizekitten Nail Art Contest.
