31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Metallic wave French Manicure

Today’s challenge is to do a nail art using a metallic polish. Here is a metallic wave french manicure which I feel is very gothic!For this nail art I’ve used the easy nail taping technique but with a twist!

Things you need:

1. Black regular/matte polish.

2. Metallic golden polish.

3. Cello/scotch tape.

4. Wave scissors.

5. Dotting tool/toothpick.

Step One: Apply black regular or matte polish and allow it to dry. I have applied matte polish to the pointer and pinky finger and regular to middle and ring finger, just to give you an idea. You can also make the matte polish at home (READ HERE).

Remove the tape once the polish is dry. Repeat for all nails.
