Amy Walp shows how to create this hippie chic French.
Apply three contrasting shades of colored acrylic (like green, pink, and purple) next to each other above the smile line.
With a brush, blend the three colors together before they set, creating a tie-dye effect. Make a crisp smile line.
Working quickly, apply a flower embellishment in the upper outside corner and press down slightly to embed into unset acrylic.
Cap the entire nail with either clear or pink acrylic. File and shape. Buff to a shine or apply top coat.
