Great thread as I'm looking for inspiration!
I want to steer away from traditional French and so far I came up with this, also a while ago someone uploaded a pic with stamped white lace instead of white tip - can't find it now but it was lovely
(How you guys upload those big photos? I've managed to do it once but I forgot!)
I particularly love using opaque products for a total transformation. I have really short nail beds, but I want them to look perfect.
Or nude nails.
Colour if the theme allows but personally I think you can't beat a classic French.
I do a mood board where we can note down colours, pin ideas of styles that my bride likes. We have shapes, colours, natural or enhanced, etc. We play with fabrics and 3d, etc. It's so much fun choosing
I did this French on an ex nail biter client - whose nails we got to this length with weekly Shellac manicures and lots of Solar Oil. I used Negligee, Cream Puff and then a very pale pink pigment burnished into the tips and a white lace stamp. These are her natural nails. Both the client and I were quite proud of how they looked x
