Another Funky Frenchie!

Hello, my lovelies! It’s Friday again and today I have a funky Frenchie for you. Jilltastic Nail Design’s challenge this week was a French mani, but it didn’t have to be the traditional white. Yay! 

I’d been doing some swatching today so I’m a bit high from the fumes and feeling rather tired! Please forgive me for not being too verbose today.

I knew I wanted bright orange tips, and since Hubby’s alma mater school colors are orange and burgundy, I chose Maybelliene Express Finish in Plum Intense for my base. It’s a rich burgundy jelly that builds up nicely. I started to draw bright orange hearts, but botched it up and had to start over. For the orange, I chose Sinful Colors Summer Peach, my current neon love affair. It dries matte but so shocking neon orange I love it. I’ve had it on my toes for a week! But I digress. I did some dots in Summer Peach as well, the added in some China Glaze White on White dots for contrast. 

The weather is very moody today, so I didn’t really have sunshine but it’s a bright overcast. 

That’s all I got for now. Everyone have an awesome weekend!


  1. Wow! I never would have expected those colours to look so great together. Fun!

  2. Oooh, came out great. Those brights look fantastic on you!

  3. It's cute! I need to redo my toes, what color to use.

  4. Thank you, lovelies! Hubby was very happy I used Virginia Tech's colors. Jen, I love neons on my toes in the summer. Like a little burst of cheer when I look down!

  5. That's awesome--I love the VT connection!!

  6. Yes, brights on the toes are awesome for summer!

    :-) These are very cute!
