A French manicure has a white tip, but you can always mix things up a bit.
I decided to use a dark rose red from Rimmel and quite liked it. It stayed quite long too (about a week but a little fix here and there).
You can also try other colours like orange, pinks (probably a darker pink), and dark beiges or browns.
Really good for daily wear, and more casual but also great for matching a particular outfit you may have in mind.
Who says the tips must be lighter?
What do you think?
