Nothing to Disclose
Hello again lovelies!
Two posts in one day because I've got something very simple and kind of out of the ordinary for you.
I wanted to take on the challenge of doing a French mani in an interesting way, because they've never held any appeal for me before. This is what I came up with:
Things I learned from this adventure:
1) I am crap at linework;
2) I need to thin my Glitter Food.
For this look, I began with base coat and a coat of Nail Glow. I then freehanded the moons in Gossip Over Gimlets, did the exaggerated French tips in Recycle (using French tip guides, because whoa let's not be over-ambitious here), and the linework in Tempest (which also needs to be thinned). Topped it all in Glitter Food for optimal smoothness, and top coat to finish it off.
Duri - Rejuvacote (base coat)
Dior Couture - Nail Glow
China Glaze - Gossip Over Gimlets
Rescue Beauty Lounge - Recycle (which is a beautiful dark green, but not as dark as pictured)
la couleur couture - 2013 (top coat)
I could see a better-executed version of this being a really classy look for a cocktail party or other style-forgiving event. It holds up on its own without being too complex. :)
I bought a Marc Jacobs polish today that is literally the least me-like polish I now own, and my next challenge is to incorporate it into a mani! Eep!
