Nude and Gradient Neon French Tip Nail Art

The challenge on Nail Art Nation last week was French tips. I’m not normally a fan of this style, maybe because I find it a bit boring! But I’m not sure if my natural nails are best suited to it anyway. I chose to do a Nude and Neon French Tip with a soft gradient.
