I took some pictures of the brush to show you what a perfect cleanup brush looks like. The other end of the brush has a small dotting too. I actually use this as part of clean up also. Since the brush isn't very stiff, I push back my cuticles with the small dotting tool that way I can clean up the excess polish that gathered near my cuticle with ease.
Look at my french tips! It isn't perfect I know. But these are the best french tips I have ever created (even my right had looked decent!). Lol! And in keeping with the holiday colors. I thought I would do shimmery red tips!
In order to create the french tips, I polished the tips with red polish pretty sloppily and then I dipped my french brush in acetone. I tried to keep a good amount of acetone on the brush, not dripping wet but pretty soaked, then I placed the whole brush where I wanted my smile line and gently pressed down flat against my nail and swiped from side to side brushing away the excess polish to make the french lines.
Wow that was a wordy post! Ironic since I do not like to read wordy blog posts. What do you think of my french tips? I would tell you the name of the red polish, but I got this in a Color Club pack from Ross and threw out the box. I'm so sorry, if anyone can name it please let me know! It seems like a metallic Santa red polish.
