Scalloped French with chevron accents

I used my dotting tools to make these French tips. WAY easier than a classic French manicure. I used a smaller tool to add some accent dots.
Not sure how long these nails will last as im heading out to the garden shortly!

    how did you do the chevron accent??

      I used scotch tape and pinking shears. Paint the nail a base color. Cut the zig zag strips using scotch tape and pinking shears. Lay the strips out on the nail and paint right over with an alternate color. Remove the scotch tape right away for a clean line. Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!

    Scalloped edge? I think it’s adorable, How’d you do that?? I’m having a great time here.

      Aw. I’m glad! I used a large dotting tool and made a tight line across the tips. I filled in the tip with a little extra white polish. I used a smaller dotter for the accent in teal.
