Recreate this super pretty side French nails by using the following:
- OPI – Natural Nail Base Coat
- Sally Hansen – Miracle Gel Top Coat
- CND: Naked Naiveté
- OPI – Unfrost My Heart
- French Tip Guides
Step 1: Apply Base Coat
Apply OPI natural base coat to all of your nails. I’ve stressed over and over again just how important it is to put on base coat even before starting your nail art and right after prepping the nails. Doing this prevents nail staining, chipping, and breakage.
Step 2: Paint Base Color
Apply CND ‘Naked Naiveté’ polish to your nails. This color will serve as the base of your design. The creamy color is just the right hue to wear during special occasions. I can almost see you agree!
Step 3: Place French Tip Guide
Once your base color is dry, apply a French tip guide vertically to one side of your nail. All you have to do is peel off the guide then paste it sideways on your nails. This will ensure that your side French nails will look perfect.
Step 4: Apply Silver Nail Polish
Apply OPI ‘Unfrost My Heart’ polish to the right side of the sticker only. Paint a few coats to make it more vivid. Make sure to remove the guide immediately after applying the silver nail polish.
Step 5: Finish with Top Coat
Apply Sally Hansen ‘Miracle Gel’ Top Coat to help protect your manicure. It will also give your side French nails a nice glossy finish. Looking pristine, right?
And viola! Here’s a look at the finished product:
There you have it. Your side French nails are done. The process is so easy to recreate so even if you’re just a budding nail junkie you can easily do this on your own. This is definitely the prettiest shade you can ever wear to special events.
