So here's something I came up with when I kind of wanted a french manicure but, you know....better. I used O.P.I - You Callin' Me a Lyre? as my base, then carefully freehanded the white areas with the bottle brush of Color Club - White Tip. Once it was totally dry I added the tape and Swarovski crystals, then sealed it all in with gel top coat. making sure I didn't actually cover the crystals with it. (Don't want to lose those facets!)
I really loved this design, and it's been getting quite a lot of love over at Sarah's Sparkles, too. But what do you guys think...would you rock this french mani?
