French Week – lacy french

Posted by manicuremania on August 30, 2009

french week
This is a pretty classic french manicure. Simple and elegant, and I really like this look! I used Sally Hansen Natural Color for the sheer polish (it came in some sort of french kit years ago), and Orly White Tips for the tips, which I added last so the tips are still stark white. My critique of this is that I made the tips too thick.

classic!!

Then I added a Konad, and I think I just made my favorite manicure ever. I used white Special Polish and plate 73. Not too much more to say about it…it’s very girly and pretty and it reminds me of lace.

pretty pretty!

[edit]
OK…I really like my nails here, and because of that I plan on wearing this for a while. But it started to bug me like crazy that the tips were so thick…soooo…well, I redid them. And now I am much happier with them and I won’t have to hide my nails tomorrow at work!!

Bad Landing Konad

Posted by manicuremania on August 11, 2009

A weird thing happened while I was trying to do this design. I was on like my 7th nail, and suddenly it seemed like the pattern was drying instantly on the stamp, and it wouldn’t transfer to my nails! That’s never happened to me before, and it’s not a problem I’ve really heard of happening, either. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong! But, next time I tried it, I filed the stamp and the problem was fixed. An odd thing to make that happen, though.
