Vintage Challenge: French Bow Nails - swatches

Today on the last day of this Vintage Challenge I've got a simple but beautiful nail art to show you.

There was no theme for this nail art challenge. The only rule was to use only polishes I've showed you earlier this week. I chose the gorgeous red Zoya Posh and and the stunning plum holo China Glaze Visit Me in Prism.

This type of nail art has different names but I've chosen to call it "French Bows" because if you look at the plum tip it looks like the upper half of a bow :)

I did not use any striping tape or such. I did them by free hand. That's why they look crooked. Lol!


They did turn out a bit X-massy, but I still like the result. Fast and easy if you want to spice up your nails quickly. Maybe I'll do them again for X-mas but with white bows instead of plum ones :)

How do you like my French Bow Nails?
What would you call this type of nail art?

  4. Hi doll, I am so sorry that I could not comment any earlier. But I felt like death warmed over in this heat. I don't know why but your nailart reminds me of YSL - the real one. It has a very elegant vintage feel and something definitely royal. I would like to store it in my Skittelette Inspiration Folder if you don't mind. Have a wonderful day, cuddles to Smilla and viele Küsschen for you xxx

    1. Hi pet! Don't worry! Comment when you feel like it! No pressure! I don't comment on all your posts :/ but almost all ;)
      When you wrote YSL I felt it too!! :D Maybe it's the V-shape and the choice of colors? Of course you can use it for your skittelettes! No need to ask!
      Have a great evening and cuddle Nell from me! Puss puss!! xxx
