The Inverted French Tip Manicure

By Lizzy O. - December 28, 2011

Hi ladies...

How are y'all doing today?

For today's nails, I wanted to use all brown colors but didn't have a design in mind. Somehow, I ended up with what you will see in these pictures.
When I got done doing this, I decided to call it the "The Inverted French Tips" (Hence the title of my post). Lol..
Have you seen this anywhere yet?  I've seen the "Half Moon", which looks nothing like this, but haven't seen this yet.
Someone has probably done it before, but I still feel good knowing I just freestyled and got this done. :-)

Now on to the pictures

The Inverted French Tip

For this manicure, I started with 2 thick coats of Color club - Earthy Angel as my base color, and used Once coat of China Glaze - Delight for the inverted french tip. I then outlined the "intersection" with Kleancolor Nail to toe - Texan cowboy.

 Pretty excited with the turn out. :-)

I didn't apply top coat in these pictures.

Hope you enjoyed today's Post.. :-)
I really enjoyed creating this, and I can't wait to try a "color-block effect". Imagine how cute this will be with summer colors! Using 3 different colors or more? Some additional dots? Stamping? Using a white/black line in the "intersection"/ between both colors? The possibilities are endless!

Disclaimer: I'm not claiming to be the originator of this design, but I honestly hadn't seen these anywhere before I did them on my nails.
I am happy to have done this, but I definitely won't be bummed if someone else had also done it before me. You know what they say about great minds.. ;-)

What do you think Ladies?

Thanks for reading. Till Later, God Bless. :-)
