Always Have a Friend
My sons are two years and six days apart, they celebrate a combo birthday party…
I watched a tutorial on Nails and how to do a french manicure with different color tips, after watching this video tutorial – I went ahead and did this with my own idea based on The Painted Nail tutorial. While my basis of learning how to do what I ultimately did was based on this tutorial, this version I am sharing with you below is my take on the tutorial with a twist of using my own ways. You see, I needed something that was quicker as I have two high energy boys who demand a lot of attention. When taking time to spend with my daughter, I have to ensure that it’s 1) quality time and 2) not going to take so long that my sons demand my attention in the middle. This how to do a colorful tip french manicure is what I created based on my fast paced home life.
Once you have all of your supplies ready you will need a flat surface in order for this colorful nail tip procedure to take place properly.
Step 1 – Ensure all old nail polish is off of the nail
Step 2 – Put a bit of nail polish on the tip of the nail; no “nail”? You can work this to make it “appear” as if their are finger nails without having nails – for example my daughter is a nail biter but you can see below it “appears” she has nail tips.
Step 3 – Use the eyeliner brush to dip into the nail polish remover and gently work it to make sure the bottom edge of the nail polish tip looks straight (or jagged for a Halloween look). Do this to each nail after the tip was painted on. Note: Do not use this eyeliner brush for your eyeliner ever again after using it in nail polish remover.
Step 4 – Repeat Step 2 and 3 until all 10 fingers nails are done with colorful tips.
Step 5 – Once the tips have dried paint each nail with a clear top coat nail polish. This helps hold the color on tips better/longer.
There you have it; a simple way to share mother/daughter time using creativity and colorful imagination. What’s great about this how to is that it doesn’t matter if you have long nails or bit off nails. Who knows, maybe this will assist in getting my daughter to stop biting her finger nails.
