Who among us doesn’t have an erstwhile male-tale of “I swear baby, just the tip” stashed away in our collective memory trove—amirite ladies?
Why it’s as common as fondlly remembered lover linguistics like, “You’re too good for me,” “It’s just a loan— I’ll pay you back, “stop calling me,” and “how’d you get in here, I’m calling the police,” …l-a-d-i-e-s, amirite?
…No, not so much? Ahem!
With seasonal echoes of SPRANG in the air, I bring you a freshly squeezed nail art trend—and a sad excuse of a segue.
In the opening credits of this latest nail art fad we see a resurgence of the French manicure, but instead done with colored tips! The base is clear, and/or you can play around with some opacity if you so choose.
I find they look best on natural nails as opposed to ho-stroll fakes, but hey it’s your digits, do whatcha like!
Some more examples of “just the tip“ (heh heh, I’m criminally infantile) …
Another brand new example of this, is an accented barely-there, speckled, off-kilter version, that I’m seeing mainly come out of Japan—the birthplace for all the best nail art trends. Have a looksee kittens!
To round out this nail tip confetti, is the Spring 2016 interpretation from fashion house Tibi. Nail artist extraordinaire Jin Soon combined the negative space, French, and open-V nail art trends into one graphic design dubbing it the negative split ‘tip’↓
All versions are confectionary perfection. In other words they are Beyoncé.
Which ones do you prefer or do you love ’em all? Let me know!
