I had to go tame with the nail art for a concert over the weekend, so I stayed classy, San Diego with this simple French manicure in classic fall colors.
I did not paint the tip of my ring finger so that I could turn it into an accent nail with some stamping.
Initially I stamped the full image from the plate but then removed extraneous parts around a single vine from the stamper with some tape. The idea was to let the vine curve along the tip of the nail in place of the classic French tip.
The look is elegant with just enough sparkle for the holidays.
More than anything, I wanted to take advantage of the fact that my nails have been growing out longer and healthier since my departure from a job that required some very hand abusive activities! It was nice to be able to paint some French tips, which is something that I haven’t done in a long time. Now let’s hope all this cold and dry weather doesn’t ruin my hands instead!
