Hot Off the Presses

The Mixed-Metal French

Fall’s Hottest Nail Trends guide from Cosmopolitan features a twist on a French manicure that is versatile yet trendy.

Follow these steps to achieve the look:

  1. Apply a base coat and two coats of nude polish. Let dry.
  2. Using rose gold, silver, gold and black polish, alternate the colors across your tips to create the French effect. Note: One color will have to be used twice.
  3. Repeat the tipping process for opaque edges. Finish with a top coat.

Cosmo’s Quick Tip: Use a nude base similar to your foundation color in order to complement your skin tone.
