ABC Challenge: Letter V - V tips over Kiko's Sun Pearl Amable Chartreuse

Howdy!

Well, letter V was an easy one for me... I just love V tips! So on that girly afternoon I talked to you about, my cousin Laure chose a bold yet soft manicure with V tips I am honored to show you today!
I started with two thin coats of Kiko's Sun Pearl lacquer in Amable Chartreuse, then added striping tape and did the tips with a regular black. On the ring finger I freehanded a rose, which helps soften the look and gives a contrastring manicure. Lovely, IMHO.

On a side note, I went to prison yesterday to teach some inmates about fundamental/constritutional rights, and apart from it being a blast... One of the female inmates told me she couldn't stop staring at my nails while I was there, for my polish was amazing. I can't tell you which polish it was (yet), but I promise you'll see in no time. Gee, it made me feel super proud of myself ^^

Have a nice time!

  5. This is beautiful! I just love that color, wow! Your v-tips are so crisp! That is interesting that you work with inmates? Do they have access to nail polish? Can they paint their nails?
