French Manicure

Something that I really like is a simple French Manicure, however can you believe that this is the first time I've done one since I've started my Blog! The main reason this is the first time is because with natural long nails a french manicure does not look good. I have rather short nail beds and with the long nails you can't hide your free edge and put the white tips lower than where you're natural edge actually is. So for me doing a french manicure on the longo nails would just make them look bottom heavy so to speak. On fake nails well you can create the white tip where ever you want so it's easier to pull off. Okay enough with the ramble. This was actually rather tough to do. Funny how I've pulled off some crazy nail art in the past yet a simple white smile line on the nail was tough! I just used the Orly French manicure polish which in the bottle has like a pinkish tint but on the nail it becomes this perfect white. I covered it with a clear coat of some sparkle OPI polish I had, I don't remember the name of it. I once had someone figure it out but I never wrote it down so here I am clueless again to what the name is. The French Maniucre... So simple and classic yet a pain in the butt to get it perfect looking!

    I love french manicures and yes they are really hard to get perfect. I have started freehanding mine I guess (not using tape) and it's not easy. Where did your nails go?! I must catch up on your posts. This was a shock to me. That is a very pretty sparkle polish btw :)

  2. They came out nice so it must've been worth the effort. I usually use a French Mani brush and that just requires practice practice practice. lol
