Funky French: China Glaze Exotic Encounters & Sally Hansen Black Out

Good afternoon! Today I decided to attempt Nailside's lightning bolt french manicure! I don't think I quite have it down like she does, but I like the outcome even if it's a little different than the original :P.

I used 1 coat of China Glaze Exotic Encounters as a base and Sally Hansen Black Out for the tips!

Exotic Encounters is an opaque, teal creme! It was a great base for this mani since it only required 1 coat! I never wear black for a full mani, so I like the black detail on the tips. Adds just the right amount of edge :). Black Out was a little thick for my taste, but I guess I just need to experiment with black polishes!

What do you think of this mani?
