Like many girls I'm a massive fan of painted nails but my obsession with perfect looking and unchipped nails means I waste a vast amount of time repainting them. Despite using a base coast with each application my nails have become discoloured so I decided today that I need to ditch the bright Spring colours for a while.
So, here is my alternative...
I am so happy with my french manicured nails, don't they look healthy? And yes, I did do them myself!
How did I do them?
First I applied a base coat, I used 17 clear varnish.
Next, I used a white polish to do the tips. I have no idea where I got this from, but any white polish will do the job. I do have quite a steady hand so I managed to do them free hand. (Another good way is to use hole reinforcers. I haven't gone mad, they do work. If you use a hole reinforcer, cut it in half and line the top edge up with the shape of the tip of your nail, it works great as a cheap stencil!)
And finally I applied 2 coats of a sheer, natural pink colour. Mine is by nails inc. in the shade 'south malton street'.
It did take a bit of patience, but I love a fresh look now and again!
Hope you're all having a great sunday.
