For this manicure, all I did was pick my base color, enter the lovely purplish brown color, which I painted on the tips, and then I used “fairy dust” for a top coat, giving a nice sparkly shine. How did I do this? Well, it wasn’t freehand I can tell you that, but it was so easy! I cut pieces of scotch tape in squares and put on the base of my nail in a triangle, which then made for easy painting of the tips with no straggling lines. Then, I took off the tape when it was dry and painted the sparkly coat, followed by a fast dry gloss topcoat.
