Here's what you need- base coat, black polish, top coat, matte finish, french manicure tip guides. All of the polish I used is from Essie. The black polish is called Licorice.
STEP 1: APPLY BASE COAT
STEP 2: APPLY 2 COATS OF BLACK POLISH
STEP 3: APPLY TOP COAT
STEP 4: WHEN COMPLETELY DRY, APPLY TIP GUIDES TO TIP OF NAILS
STEP 5: APPLY THIN COAT OF MATTE FINISH
STEP 6: WAIT A FEW MINUTES AND REMOVE GUIDES
Mine came out pretty decent. Not perfect but next time it will be better :) It took a lot of patience to do these for the first time. Would you do your nails like this? XO.
