An Orange French Chevron Manicure

Orange French Tips 1

Due to the fact that I am currently growing a tiny human, I’ve been avoiding nail polish for the last 5 or so months. As luck would have it, one of the side effects of pregnancy is that my nails are in better condition than they have been for YEARS! Typical.

Well today I folded. I raided my polish collection for the least toxic brands, and went to town on my nails. Being Spring here in Australia, the weather is beautiful, and I wanted something a little bit bright and spring-like on my nails. A bright chevron french tip seemed just the ticket.

I used the BioSculpture Lavender Base Coat, then applied 2 coats of piCture pOlish “Beige” (my perfect “mannequin hands” shade). I freehanded a very simple chevron tip using Essie’s “Orange, It’s Obvious!” and topped it with Lumos by Famous Names Top Coat.

Unfortunately I was a little bit hasty with the top coat, and ended up tainting the manicure with the orange from my tips, but that wasn’t going to stop me from sharing this with you!
