I am blogging from my bed tonight
it's so cosy and much warmer than my lounge haha.
I may have 'accidently' slipped into Superdrug again
and 'accidently' purchased a considerable amount
It's a good thing I've just been paid.
I was thinking about other nail effects I could show you guys
and I thought about how much I struggled to get the hang of
a french manicured finish at college
Then I purchased this today
and thought it might make doing it a bit easier
FYI - I don't practice looks before I do it, so sorry if it turns out a bit naff.
The thing with French finish .. you don't need longish nails
because it gives you that effect even if you bite your nails
you silly person. Hehe.
1. You've got to start of with clean unpolished nails
Mines aren't usually this long..
Remember it's ok if you don't have any nail
as you can fill it in yourself
This is the natural nail colour I'm using
BarryM 125 in Pale Purple
which is a really nice colour on it's own.
2. Using the BarryM Nail Pen in White, draw around your natural nail tip and a bit more if you like, but still making sure it looks natural.
A little something like this
and my computer in the background on my comfy duvet
It's really easy to draw on.
You don't have to faff around with tape
or making huge scruff marks on your skin.
3. Now using the natural Pale Purple colour paint two layers over the white polish.
Your white tips will show through and then can be used like a stencil.
See how it's like a stencil under the natural colour!
4. You must wait for the natural colour to dry
Then draw away
it is actually like using a felt tip
See how it covers up the pinkyness
and the finished product...
One French Polish without the faff
without the £30 salon fee
In the comfort of your own home.
Show me your try outs!
I'd love to see it.
