Vintage French Soul ~ Listen up everyone! This is magic! I've started regularly massaging my nails with an worn out electric toothbrush and vaseline. My cuticles have NEVER been better. Magic, I tell you!
French tips using scotch tape. I have done it with circle stickers but this might be nice for straight cut nails. This person wore the base coat for a day or two and then did the french tips to extend out her manicure.
Polish your nails with desired color. Dip your nail into a glass of rubbing alcohol. Place and press a strip of newspaper on your nail for 30 seconds. Finish with a good clear top coat to seal the deal.
