French Manicure for Fall!

I've really been into the dark nails for the Fall season, and because I'm not dressing up for Halloween this year I thought I would give you ladies a nail tutorial that goes perfectly for Fall and you can rock on Halloween to be a little festive without looking tacky.

I used a dark purple and rose gold shade, but you can choose any contrasting colors you'd like. A deep red and black or blue and copper would look amazing too!

Products Used:
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
OPI 3-in-1 Base & Top Coat
Revlon Nail Enamel in "Plum Night"
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in "Super Nova"

Step 1: 
Begin painting a base coat onto your nails to protect the names from staining and help maintain the nail color we will be putting on.

Step 2:
Begin painting one coat of nail polish to each nail, in my case, Revlon Nail Enamel "Plum Night". 

Step 3:
Once the first coat of "Plum Night" is dry, begin painting the second coat onto each nail. Let these two coats dry completely. 

Step 4:
Take your accent nail shade, in my case, Sinful Colors "Super Nova", and wipe off the excess polish and begin painting the very tips of each nail like the traditional french tip. This will require a steady hand, so take your time and be patient. 

Step 5:
Once the nail polish on the tips of the nails is completely dry, take your top coat, in my case, Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat, and paint each nail with the top coat to seal in the nail polish to prevent chipping. 

And you're done! Feel free to change up the accent nails to any way you like!
