Grungy French Tip Nail Art

So, this weekend I went to a wedding, and I decided to do some simple grungy french tips to match my black dress. I've been doing this edgy design since last year, and I still haven't made you guys a tutorial for it! (Don't worry, that'll come soon.)

Anyway, I started with a base of KBShimmer Eclipse and dragged on the tips with Essie No Place Like Chrome. I finished it all off with Glisten & Glow top coat for an incredible shine.

I love this look because it can really be created with any color combination, and it looks so edgy and chic!

I forgot to take a photo of the bottles I used, but you can see them in the background there!

I've also got a quick little collage of photos of me and my boyfriend at the wedding:

Aren't we just adorable? ;) There was a photobooth at the wedding, and they had the cutest props - in the photo on the top right, I'm holding a sign that says "Who invited this guy?" and he's holding one that says "I'm kind of a big deal." Haha! They also had hats and moustaches, it was very fun.

So, what do you think of this grungy manicure?


  1. I like these nails a lot! There so edgy but simple. You and your boyfriend are so cute too!

  2. You are too sweet, Lisa! Thank you. And I agree, it's such a cool finished look for such a simple technique ;)

  4. These nails are so cool! I can't wait for your tutorial. It looks like you guys had fun, cute photos!

  5. the elegance of simplicity <3 totally love it!
    have to try this method with other (maybe more crazy) colours :)

  6. And when you get tip wear.. it'll be hard to tell! Chic and functional!

  7. You are such a sweetheart ;) I definitely plan on trying this with other color combos, too!!
