Pearl french tip

Easy and elegant

One of the most classic and elegant manicures brides love getting is the French manicure. We created a playful twist on the timeless mani by incorporating another classic element: pearls. By painting a strand of pearly dots along the tip of your nail, it creates the illusion of a French manicure while being modern and unique.

Pearl french tip



Start with a base coat of a very sheer pink, like one that would be used for a French mani.

Using the flat top of the straight pin or a dotting tool, paint some white polish on the tip and dot onto the tip of your nail, starting with a dot in the center and working your way out.
