after trying [and succeeding] at ombre nails -- i figured i ought to step up my game with a reverse french manicure!
so i'll shoot straight -- this is not for the faint-of-heart. probably my trickiest nail-feat yet [you nail techs out there, don't look too closely]!
trim, buff, & file down your nails
1 coat bond aid
1 coat base coat
pop some stovetop popcorn w/salt & pepper for a "post-nail-art job-well-done" snack. trust me, you'll be hungry after this!
paint lighter color in a triangular shape [this doesn't have to be perfect since you'll be painting over it anyways]
paint darker color over triangle to smooth out lines and fill in the rest of the nail [a fine-point brush makes this step a bit easier]
add top coat
munch on popcorn
bask in the glory of your reverse french mani!
[my colors: opi's "you don't know jacques" and "skulls & glossbones"]
