Blue French Tip Nails for Spring!

blue tips 3

If you’ve been following this blog, you likely know I’m not very girly.  I usually don’t do pastels, but I wanted something bright and different for Spring.

My favorite color besides black is blue, mostly cobalt and vivid, bright blue.  So, I chose to do a French-style manicure with blue tips!

First, I used a Deborah Lippmann moisturizing base coat, then an OPI top coat with 18-karat gold flecks.  I painted the tips with Urban Decay’s Chaos nail enamel, a bright metallic blue.  Finally, I used Nails Inc. Caviar Top Coat to seal it all.

Although it was difficult to capture to effect of the 18-karat gold flecks, they really did a great job of capturing the light and making the shine stand out!

Wanna know something crazy?  I forgot to take pics after I did my nails, so these photos were taken two days later, AFTER lifting weights, and doing a day of yard work, including gardening, chopping limbs, pulling weeds, etc., all WITHOUT gloves.  Woo-hoo!
