For this manicure, I used Nicole by OPI The Next CEO as a base. The blue is Colorbar Pro Nail Lacquer Blue Web and the Fuchsia is L’oreal Insolent Magenta.

Here is a tutorial to achieve this look an easier way…

Things you will need:

  • Three nail paint shades: Fuchsia, blue and golden. (You can use any shade of the same color family.)

  • Base coat

  • Quick dry top coat.

  • Tweezers

  • Nail art striping tape

  1. Apply base shade and let it dry.

  1. Apply a nail art striping tape at near the free-edge, where you want to create the french tip.

  1. Apply the fuchsia shade above the tape.

  1. Apply the blue shade below the tape.

  1. Carefully remove the tape with the help of tweezers before the nail paint becomes goopy/thready.

  1. Clean near the cuticles and top off the nails using a good top coat.
