Fall Nails Inspiration: Messy French Tips

I just spotted this deep purple and taupe messy French tipped manicure at Shoptalk {Shopbop‘s blog ~ yes, I may have been doing a little shopping} and I fell in love with the idea of the messy French tip in monochromatic hues and playing with a matte vs shiny look.

Methinks I will be recreating this in the near future.

I love it next to the leopard print too.

    LOVE the clutch. The manicure looks good too, I would have never thought to do a “Messy” manicure but I think I like it!

    What a fab idea and it looks real good. I’d have to try it out myself too.
