The classic french manicure with a twist

heart on thumb - see how to make hearts on nails here
metallic french manicure by Paula Shoe-fiend

Maybe you've noticed how much I like metallic nails. We talked about how to get chrome nails and then I used aluminum  foil to make a gold dipped manicure. Some metallic nail polish are nice as well to get the look, they might be not really metal looking, but we can emphasize the effect pairing the metallic nail polish with a solid color. I really liked the blue and silver french mani that Paula of Shoe-fiend put together. I think this metallic french manicure is a nice twist to everyday manicure and can be also a quick fix for a chipped manicure. I added a little heart just on the thumb since they're so easy to do

It looks great on paper but I feel that because of the colour, it shortens the look of the nail and therefore shortens the look of the fingers :(
