Naomi's Choice...

Metallic frilly french tips:

Naomi wanted me to do a mani using pink, silver and black. I think she might have meant bright pink, but I was sifting through my collection and found Sizzlin' Rose in my in my Sally Hansen Chromes. I love the colour.

So I used that as my base colour then brushed on a slightly off center chevron french tip in Crystal (same brand).

I placed large black dots of Wet n' Wild Black Creme along the chevron tip, then dotted Crystal on top of them so that the top of each black dot was erased, creating this frilly effect:

Then I added my rhinestones along the base of each nail. Topcoat and voila! Naomi's choice!

Some of the dots went on a bit too thick, and the metallic polishes tend to show off any little fault in the application, or the nail beneath, so it isn't a perfect mani, but people would only really notice up close and personal. Anyways, I had fun!

I expect my BM image plates any day now! Maybe today...*GLEE*

Cheers and thanks for stopping by!
