Day 22: French Tip. SO many ways this could be done. I wanted to go with something semi-traditional just because it's a look I never do.

For this mani I used Nicole by OPI's "Dream Maker" for my base colour (3 coats, it's super sheer with strong gold shimmer). I stamped with Konad's white stamping polish and used Konad's stamping plate M57 (image below). I topped with Seche Vite.
Under LED desk lamp.
Indoors, bright daylight (no direct sun), near windows.
Outside, bright daylight (no direct sun).
Stupid sun not here. :(
Konad stamping plate, M57.
Overall I like this mani but I need a LOT more practice with alignment. I don't know why but I always end up tilting my images the same way. Frustrating! I *think* I'm lining them up but when I look it's all weird. Grr. I originally did this mani using Essie's "Good As Gold" for the stamping but it wasn't showing up very well against the pink-gold base so I redid it with white.
Where to buy this stuff? Nicole by OPI is widely available here in Canada, not sure about other countries - I bought this shade several years ago at Shoppers Drug Mart (Canadian drug store chain). Konad stamping polishes and stamping plates are fairly easy to get your hands on - I bought these at Nail Polish Canada.
NB: I purchased these items myself. I have NO affiliation whatsoever with the polish/product makers or websites featured.
