Twinsie Tuesday: Sideways French

Hey all! Today's Twinsie Tuesday post theme is the sideways french. I had zero inspiration for this theme until late last night, lol! Some times the simplest things cause me the most grief! For those of you who aren't too sure what a sideways french mani is, it is done with a thin line of a different color along the sidewalls of your nail beds. I decided to do a little modification and continue that line up along the free edge of my nails and am really surprised at how much I like the result!


Zoya - Neely
O.P.I. - Hey Baby

French tip vinyl stickers

I used some vinyl french tip stickers and cut them with a pair of scissors in order to get the shape I wanted. There was no way I as going to free hand the lines so late last night, but it actually worked out quite well! I also really like these two colors together. I see a stamped mani using them in my future!

These turned out so fun and I may revisit the idea again in the future. That's one of the great things about the TT themes. They make me think outside of my comfort zone (someone actually posted about that in our FB group this week!) and challenge my creative muscles. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Twinsies and their take on the sideways french!
