Gilded Freehand French Manicure

This manicure is one I constantly go back to and wear again and again. The combination of red and gold always feels glamorous! Unlike a usual french manicure, I don't bother with special stickers or templates to get the tip design/edge. This look is super easy to create freehand just using the brush the polish comes with. I call it a petal french, I don't know if it has a name. This can be done with any combination of colors, or with white like a traditional natural french manicure. I don't like regular french manicures with the straight line but somehow this simple twist on the idea always feels extra feminine and pretty when I wear it.

 Start out by painting two coats of your base color. Here I used China Glaze in China Rouge.

Then with your tip color, simply start from the outside of the nail with the polish's built in brush and pull it over and down off the middle of the tip. Here I used Gold Coin from Revlon (which is one of my favorite gold polishes).

Repeat the same movement on the other side of the nail and you are already done! Super easy and quick!

Top with clear top coat and tadah, a fun feminine french manicure that's not like all the others! Stay glamorous everybody!
