Pinterest Success: French Manicure

SO Glad it's Friday! I'm leaving you with this groundbreaking idea this weekend...

This is one of those pinterest successes that I feel obligated to share. It's just that awesome. This weekend, I was thinking about getting a shellac manicure with white tips painted on my nails. I've done this before, but it costs around $30 and by the end of the week my shellac is peeling off my nails.

I remembered finding this pin on pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. It's so awesome, I have to share.

I used OPI as a base coat
OPI Alpine Snow as my tip color 
Seche Vite as my top coat

First, paint the base coat on your nails (let it dry completely)

Next, put paper reinforcements on your nails 
(You can move them according to how thick you want your tip to be)

Paint the tip above the paper reinforcements

Let the tips dry COMPLETELY before removing your stickers. 
Once you remove the stickers, paint your nail with a top coat.

Finished product!! I think they look just as great as the $30 shellac version I've been paying for.

You can find the original pin here

(p.s. I hope you liked my flannel pajamas as the entire background :) )

Linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!


  1. I'm glad you felt obligated to share, because these really do look fantastic. I think they look just as good as the shellac manicure as well.

    1. I love the flannel pajamas. They bring out the elegance of the french manicure :-)
