I'm fond of vampy nails and unexpected colours like grey, bright green or orange lately and I've never had even a french manicure, so I thought I might try this edgy retro look.

Sally Hanson Complete Salon Manicure Polish in Polar Bare
and french manicure nail stickers
Let the polish dry and then let it dry some more. You'll be putting stickers on top of the polish so it needs to be as hard as possible.
Press the stickers down so they adhere to the skin and the nails as closely as possible. You don't want any of the darker shade to seep or bleed underneath the stickers.
Your nails should look something like this once the stickers are in place.
|Kinda cool-looking, right?|
This is my hand with one coat of Vintage Vamp applied.
Here is my finished hand. I always end up getting polish on my skin but in the morning when I shower, it peels off. With a Q-tip dipped in polish remover I cleaned up the mess a little for the photos though.
