French manicure, my interpretation

We all know the popular French manicure with the white tip, and we have all done it many times. Personally I have never been a big fan of it, I just feel that it is a bit too conservative for me, so I always try to find ways to quirky it up, and make it more playful. So here is my interpretation of it.

Όλες μας γνωρίζουμε καλά το λευκό Γαλλικό μανικιοúρ, και όλες μας το έχουμε φορέσει αρκετές φορές. Προσωπικά δεν το έχω υποστηριξει και πολύ, ίσως να είναι λίγο συντηριτικό για εμένα. Γι ΄αυτό πάντα προσπαθώ να βρώ μοντέρνους και διαφορετικούς τρόπους που να μου ταιριάζουν. Εδώ σας δείχνω μια διαφορετική εκτέλεση του.

HOW TO:

We will need green and black nail varnish, top and base coat and our stick on French tips. Paint with the light (green) varnish your nails and let it dry. When it has dried, place the stick-on tips and then paint the black varnish and then quickly remove the tip, and let it dry. Decide whether you want to have a full French tip result or you can just leave a couple like I did. Finish with your top coat and you are ready!

Good luck

ΠΩΣ:

Θα χρειαστούμε πράσινο και μαύρο μανό, βάση, γυαλιστικό και τις αυτοκόλητες ταινίες για το γαλλικό μανικιουρ. Βάφουμε τα νύχια μας πράσινα και τα αφήνουμε να στεγνώσουν. Αφού στεγνώσουν καλά κολάμε τις ταινίες στην άκρη των νυχιών και περνάμε το μαυρο μανό και αφαιρούμε γρήγορα τη ταινία. Είναι πολύ συμαντικό να το αφήσουμε να στεγνώσει καλά πριν βαλουμε το γύαλιστικό. Αποφασίστε αν θέλετε το ίδιο αποτέλεσμα σε όλα τα νύχια ή απλά σε μερικά. Μόλις στεγνώσουν βάζουμε το γυαλιστικό και είμαστε έτοιμες!

Καλή επιτυχία!
