Nail Art How-To: A Faded French Tip
1. Prep and paint. - File your nails into the desired shape, push back your cuticles — DO NOT CUT THEM! — and apply a basecoat, such as Essie Grow Stronger. - Then, paint your nails with two coats of a bubblegum pink, like Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in "May." 2. Create the French tip. - Drop a few beads of orange polish onto a small piece of foil. - Next, cut a makeup sponge into a triangle (so you can use all three sides as you paint your nails), and dip one of the edges of the sponge into the orange lacquer. - -Then, pat the sponge along the tip of the nail in a crescent shape, creating the French tip. Don't worry if it isn't perfect; that's the point of the faded look. It's not supposed to be ombré, but it isn't supposed to be pristine either. 3. Finish with a layer of topcoat of your choice on each nail.

I love this color combo. I would have never thought to use a sponge/makeup pad like that.
I always mess these things up but hopefully the sponge will keep me from making these too ugly haha
I've always tried to do this with the nail polish brush but it comes out so uneven. I'm definitely going to try it this way next time!
