Faded French Tutorial

Some French manicures just look too tacky and chunky to be beautiful, and for special occasions like your wedding, the last thing you want is to look tacky.

I've worked with Weddingstar to deliver an easy and more subtle French manicure look. Read my write-up of the look over at Weddingstar's blog here! They'll be doing a Fashion Friday post every second Friday, and I'm honored to be the kickoff post for it, so please go give it a look (whether you're in a bridal party soon or not).


  1. Awesome take on a French mani! I love it!

  2. This is amazing! I adore it. Utterly adore it!!! So so good :D

  3. Yessir, this is a nice bridal look, alright! :D
    Love the subtle french tip, specially 'cause I'm not a fan of the whole Frenchie manis. Which is why I love the whole gradient effect on this here look :)
    Thank you for your (always) fab tutorial! **

  4. Rally like this, it's so different but very classic at the same time.

  5. Oooh, I like this a lot. Very well done, love the colours and the glitter brings to all together. Love it! xx

  6. In love - will be using this French technique a lot!

  7. ficou lindo o resultado...

  8. This is a cool concept but it doesn't work in the way that it's described.

    1. Maybe I can help. What are you seeing in your attempts?

  9. I've been wanting to try this mani since you posted it, and now I finally did :) You can see it here (sorry it's all in Swedish): http://nailsandallthatjazz.blogspot.se/2014/03/nail-art-sunday-faded-french.html
    It's not as good as yours though, but you are a great inspiration!
