I love this! You did such a beautiful job! Any tips or tricks on getting the perfect French mani? Mine always turn out awful no matter which technique I use or stickers/Konad plate.
Thank you for all your kind comments. I've tried stickers in the past but I find them to be super messy and they don't line up properly with my natural nail. I always do these free hand, so I suggest using OPI or China Glaze polishes, only because the brushes on those 2 brands I find give you so much more control compared to everything else I've tried. Also the polish formula of OPI and China Glaze is thinner making that's easier to work with (ususally 2 coats will give you the proper look). I also use the brush vertically, you need to clean if off a bit but not too much (that will give you streaks) and then start in the middle and line the brush up to how thick you want the tip to be and then just stroke the brush up. If the line is a bit uneven you can use a nail brush or even a Q-tip with some nail polish remover to fix or use a fine glitter polish to apply right underneath the tip so that you can hide the uneveness of the line a bit. I think the most important thing is to practice, you'll get better and faster naturally! I hope that helped :)
