Caribbean Fishnets

Good Morning Lovlies!

How are all my wonderful readers today?
Good I hope!

This morning I have a Funky French for you!  I have been wanting to do this mani for a LOOOONG time.

I started with a base of 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-dri in Petal Pusher.
Then I free handed on french tips in Caribbean Temptation.  I do my french tips by starting on 1 side and dragging the brush about halfway across the nail.  Then doing the same from the other side.  I then go back and perfect the arch in the middle to make sure it's smooth.  Next I go back and hold the brush perpendicular to the smile line and brush from line to tip, which usually gives me a nice smooth finish in that 1 thickish coat.

I find that method WAY easier than attempting to paint the tip on by dragging the brush from one side to the other.  When I did it this way, I ALWAYS ended up with lopsided tips!


I think used my black Special Polish and plate M57 to stamp the Fishnet pattern over the tips.

I polished (no pun intended) up the look with a line of Silver glitter using my Stripe Rite.

I just LOVE that purple flash that Caribbean Temptation has!

Side Note...
We will be leaving WAY early in the morning to head up to Ocean City Maryland, for the Endless Summer Cruise-in!  I have an AWESOME mani planned that I will do tonight.  I will probably not be able to post it until late Thursday evening, that is if we have internet access at the Hotel.  I can't figure out if we do or not from their website!  So if there is nothing fun up for ya Friday morning, then sadly I wont be in contact until Monday!

Thank you for stoppin' in!  I hope you have a fantastic day!

this is really fab... im not so good in putting french tip... i'll try the way u put urs... thanks for sharing this...

Stiletto said...

Thanks girl!
You can always use the french tip guides. I do alot, but was too lazy to dig them out the day I did this! LOL
I'm pretty sure you have natural nails, so you can do it how konADDICT does, which is just slap on a tip color, then clean up with a thin paint brush dipped in acetone or remover.
The brush will sort of fan out creating the perfect smile line!
I do it this way occasionally, and it works rather well!

Hope that helps!
