10 Day Challenge -- Day 9

Happy Monday everyone!  Wow, where has the time gone!  Can you believe that this is the LAST DAY for the Challenge?  Craziness I tell ya!

Here are all the entries for Day 9.  The theme is French tip variant.  Everyone knows what the French tip manicure is, so I thought it would be kinda cool to put a little twist on it and do French tips that are a little "our of the ordinary" or "outside the box".  I'm really impressed with what everyone came up with!

Let's take a look :D

Erica's Nails and More Day 9 entry:
I love French tips, no matter what the colour combination! For this I used Julep Lynn as my base colour (light pink). Then swiped Julep Sandra on an angle from the right side of my nail down to the centre, then swiped Julep Marisa from the left side of my nail down to the centre.

April Boulware Day 9 entry:
TipTop Black Forest, thumb Zoya Whitney, pointer NYC Water St Blue, middle Zoya Sookie, ring Zoya Malia and pinky Pure Ice Wild Thing.
dreamyMM Nails & Make Up Day 9 entry:
With French Manicure I believe less is more... Am a big fan of the original plain white with semi-sheer white one, but today I made a different version because am in this Red alert mood LoL Used Revlon Matte Sued, Fire Fox No.507 and Black from Technic Nail Art Polishes.
Erin Fleming Day 9 entry:
Ugh - total chevron nail fail. My tape wasn't as flat as I thought it was I guess. I used Enchanted Polish Ocean Potion and Awesomeness.
Lustrous Lacquer Day 9 entry:
I did this super quickly today in about 15 mnutes. Base color is Loreal Tweet Me, tips are done in Sinful Colors Pink Forever. The dots are Milani White on the Spot and the lines are a white striper from Kiss. I like how loud and fun this is.
Muffin Nails Day 9 entry:
I was actually really stumped for this one, so I used the trick that always works: add glitter. The red is Sinful Colors Gogo Girl, and the wonderful glitter is China Glaze Electrify.
Painted Nubbs Day 9 entry:
I had no inspiration as for what to do, so I just went with dots. But, I think it's cute and really simple. The base is Zoya Wednesday and the dots are Zoya Arizona.
FingerFood Nails Day 9 entry:
Today was really tricky for me as I'm not a fan of French manis! Think its because I've done so many over the years!!! Anyway, this is as close as I allow myself to get ;) I used Rimmel Jet Black and Color Club Oooooo La La and Electro Candy.
Sandra Bickel Day 9 entry:
Wet n Wild Megalast I Need A Refresh-Mint, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Gem stickers from KISS.
Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Lacquer Day 9 entry:
My french tip variant is Orange and Blue! I used Sinful Colors Midnight Blue for the base and Zoya Myrta for the tips and dots. I'm a HUGE Florida Gators fan, and I do an Orange and Blue mani each weekend during football season, so this also served as this weekend's manicure.
See Jodi Polish Day 9 entry:
For this french tip variant I decided to honor my Husbands love for the New England Patriots. I started with a base coat of just base coat and then sponged the tips. Blue is done with China Glaze Dorothy Who? and then along the very tip I used Cult Nails Living Water. The red is done with NYC Broadway Burgundy Frost and along the very tip is China Glaze Lubu Heels.
The white accent nail is Julep's Kate (of course) and the awesome glitter is Lacquer Conventions Mondrian. I then topped it all off with China Glaze Fairy Dust. I know this is sort if in between a gradient and a french tip variant but I wanted to do something non-traditional.

Sparkle and Shine Nails Day 9 entry:
I had a lot of ideas for this day, and may do my redo for tomorrow and try another one :-). But for this evening I did Sinful Colors Cinderella and free-handed OPI Pink shatter tips (I LURVE the shatter tips!).
Amber Nolan Day 9 entry:
Im really loving this simple mani! Pure Ice Jamaica Me Crazy with black & silver glitter nail art on the tips.
No Naked Nails Day 9 entry:
Hard to believe this challenge is almost over!! Heres my entry, I used WnW Club Havanah and LA Colors Energy Source (white) I actually was doing this to wear to work to support my football team, TN Vols. I am really happy with how it turned out :)
