The manicure for this photo shoot was an easy one.
The formula was simple: A light coat of gel manicurant with a touch of the yellow of the red, green and blue shades.
I took a photo with my iPhone, and it’s been a week since I’ve worn it.
A few weeks ago, I got an idea.
How about using it as a reverse French manicure?
If the manicure is too messy to use as a normal french manic, then why not have it look the same?
So I took the formula and put it on the bottom of my pinkie.
Then I pressed it over my pinky finger and applied a light layer of the gel on top.
It looked nice.
But the trick was to get the gel to flow onto my pinkies fingers without any sort of glue.
As I started to work with it, I discovered it’s not that easy to get gel on the pinkies, and I started thinking, if I can’t use the formula on my pink fingers, how can I use it on my hands?
This led me to create a reverse manicure: I just had to get my fingers to work, and I could then apply the gel with a few drops of the liquid makeup remover.
Here’s how it went down: I started off with a simple reverse French look, using a light pink and a red gel manicured finger, with a light red nail polish on the ring finger.
In this shot, I applied a second layer of gel to my pink, then my ring finger, then over the ring, and finally my pink.
You can see the result below.
After a few days of applying gel, I decided I wanted a more subtle look, and to try it out I used a red nail paint on my middle finger and the ring.
This time, the gel is much more noticeable and you can see in the picture below how I applied the first layer on my ring and middle finger, and then over my ring, my pink and ring finger: As you can tell, I used two layers of gel, one on the outer layer and one on my inner finger, which meant the gel was all over my nails.
To use it, you just apply a small amount of the color you want to be on your fingers, and when the gel coats them, you can apply the liquid.
After applying the liquid, you apply the second layer, and repeat the process.
When you’ve applied the second and third layers of liquid makeup, apply the last layer with the ring and the pinkie to create the reverse french look.
I think it’s time to start making some more pictures!
