I saw on Amazon that the French Tip nail plate that I've been debating on getting was on sale. I had to get it of course. It came in the mail a few days ago so I'm hoping to try it soon. Unfortunately, I won't be able to use them as a traditional French Tip style because I smashed my finger in the door the other day so my nail will be purple for a while. I will be wearing dark nail polishes until that grows out. I'm not exactly sure how I did it, but I had my hand on the doorknob and my middle finger got caught in the metal part of the latch when I was closing it. It was not pleasant. I am surprised, however, that my nail polish didn't chip! It tore my skin so I was bleeding a bunch, but nail polish is fine. Yay for topcoat!
I saw an example online of a girl who did thick stripes with the French Tip plate so I might try that one of these days.
