I was a huge french manicure fan when I was in middle and high school. I will admit to getting white-tipped acrylics a few times (never again!) and would often get simple french tips on the rare occasions I went for a manicure. But it’s been years since I’ve had french tips on my nails, and I’m honestly just not that into them. But I saw a picture of black tips from a Spring 2013 fashion show (don’t remember which) and they stuck in my mind. They’re still simple and classic and just as clean-looking as white tips, but a lot more modern.
I used Sinful Colors Black on Black for the tips, topped with an allover coat of Seche Vite. (I did try adding a coat of OPI My Pointe Exactly – a light gray jelly – to see how it would look and hated it.)
Definitely an interesting way to wear black nail polish without really wearing black nail polish. I’m still not completely in love with these, but I like them a lot more than I thought I would.
Be honest: would you wear black tips? Do you prefer classic white tips, brightly colored ones, or are you just not into them at all?
