Essie French Tips

For some reason, recently I had a hankering for a matte/metallic combo. I wasn't sure if I ever shared Essie Wrap Me Up which was part of the Cashmere Mattes collection, so I decided to use that and paired it with Essie Penny Talk. Penny Talk is a really shiny metallic polish. I wanted to do a think french manicure, so I did it free hand and left the finish as is and didn't use a top coat.



Wrap Me Up is such a gorgeous color, but the formula is a pain to work with. It gets really splotchy and uneven. I think I used three coats here with very careful application. For the tips, I just dragged the brush lightly over the tips and touched up spots as needed.

Hope you like this simple design! Thanks for stopping by!
