Getting Nailed: A French Twist

My nailspiration.
I don't know if you've been noticing, but nail designs are all the rage right now. You can't be on Pinterest or Instagram and not see some creative, pretty, funky, different, odd, and whatever else nail designs lately. Well, I was inspired by the design to my right that I spotted while doing a Google search. I decided to try out the pointy nails (thanks to Rihanna, Beyonce, and Draya from BBWLA) and wound up liking them. I didn't go overboard with the stiletto ones, as they can look a bit like talons. But because I am new to this look, I need to look up nail inspirations. So when I saw this 'tuxedo french' look, I wanted to try it. I bought essie "Brooch the subject" polish (I love essie polish!! I wish they made wall paint. That would be fab right??) and showed my nail stylist this photo. The result?
My nails with essie Brooch the subject polish.

It took a little getting used to, but everyone loves it...and I do too. And this essie color is perfect for my complexion when I want the nude look. I have some more designs in mind for my next appointment, so I'll be sure to keep you updated.

Did I nail it? Would you sport it?


  1. Pointy nails look cool but, scare me a little. Love the dark tips :)

  2. Haha. They kind of scare me too. It takes some getting used to, but I can't go as pointy as some have gone. But thanks! Stay tuned for the next design :) xo
