1 Prepara tus uñas Prep your nails

Lima tus uñas dándoles tu forma favorita. Las uñas con forma almendrada son tendencia en este momento, pero el caso es llevar la forma con la que te sientas cómoda.

File your nails and give them your favorite shape. Almond nails are on trend at the moment, but the thing is to wear the shape you feel comfortable with.

2 Aplica esmalte base Apply base coat

Aplica un esmalte base si tus uñas son desiguales o si vas a utilizar un esmalte oscuro para evitar que se pongan amarillas. De lo contrario, puedes omitir este paso.

Apply base coat if your nails are uneven or if you are going to use a dark nail polish to prevent them from going yellow. Otherwise, you can skip this step.

3 El tono base The base shade

Aplica una capa del tono de esmalte de uñas que se verá en la base de las uñas y deja secar. Para la manicura francesa invertida que aparece en este post se ha utilizado el esmalte BUTTER LONDON en el tono The Full Monty, un dorado claro con micro partículas brillantes.

Apply one coat of the nail polish shade that is going to peek at the base of your nails and let dry. BUTTER LONDON in The Full Monty, a shimmery light gold, has been used for the reverse French manicure featured in this post.

4 La forma de media luna The crescent shape

Aplica otra capa con el tono que ocupará la mayoría de tus uñas, dejando una forma de media luna en la base. Esto permitirá que se muestre el color base en el nacimiento de la uña. Utiliza un esmalte opaco para garantizar la cobertura total del tono base.

Apply another coat with the shade that will take most of your nails, leaving a crescent shape at the base. This will allow the base color to show through. Use an opaque nail polish to garantee full coverage of the base shade.

Para combinar con el tono dorado, se ha utilizado ESSIE Gel Couture Spool Me Over, un tono melocotón suave con matices cálidos.

ESSIE Gel Couture Spool Me Over, a light peach with warm undertones, has been used to match with the gold shade.

  • Sadly, I lack any talent when it comes to the fingernail polish category. For some reason, I can never get the polish to look even and smooth, like you’re able to do, so I’ve given up. However, I can admire your finished results. Nicely done! 🙂
