Create a sparkling silver French tip

Certain colors come and go throughout the year, but shades of maroon and cranberry are always fashionable during the holiday season. A deep cranberry manicure is a bold fashion statement, and adding a silver metallic French tip to the design makes it truly spectacular.
For this unique manicure, silver and cranberry are paired up with assorted nail gems and a few silver accent charms. Feel free to paint the metallic French tip on every nail, or go your own way and add some freestyle swatches of silver wherever you want.

Instructions
1. Apply two coats of cranberry gel polish to the nails, and cure them with the UV or LED lamp in between coats.
2. Dip the angled nail brush into the silver gel paint and paint the tip of each nail. Cure the nails with the lamp before proceeding.
3. Use a wooden toothpick to put a small amount of hard gel on the nail. (Tip: The hard gel is only used as a base for setting the nail charms and gems. Do not use it all over the nail.)
