My first french manicure
As promised I'm going to show you my very first french manicure today, but before I show you the pictures of my manicure I have to tell you something else =).
A bit more than a week ago I got a lovely gift from Maja and Gregor, the owners of Slovenian internet store ličila.si. It was a complete shock, but I don't mind being surprised like that.
This is the set I'm talking about:
A set of 6 polishes( you can see some pretty pastels hidden in the box) from beautyuk called urban girl.
I wore every single polish from this set, and I must say that they really surprised me in a positive way. They apply like a butter, the colors are gorgeous, the wear time is awesome, the price is really affordable and if I compare the price with the quality, they are ridiculously cheap =). And I must say that I was the most surprised with the white one, because it applied really easy and it was opaque in 2 coats, and we all know that this is pure heaven for a white polish. The only bad thing about this set is, that they come in set, so you can't decide which ones to buy and sadly they don't have names.
All my Slovenian readers can buy this set(and a lot more) on their web page(licila.si).
Because they are so kind I think that they would also love to assist all the girls that aren't from Slovenia, so all of you who don't have access to the things they sell, feel free to send them an e-mail.
Now off to my first french manicure.
I've always hated classical french manicure, that dreadful white tip always made me sick. I did give it a try many times, but I never got to the point that I'd say that this is it, I like it. But than I finally realised, that I could try adding a little extra on the white tip, to make it a bit more acceptable. And this is what I did this time, and I must say that I'm quite satisfied with the result.
I used scotch tape to make the white line( of course I had to use the white polish from urban girl set) and konad m44 and Lacura cyclam for the stamping on the tip.
This is what I got:
Of course I had to add one of my necklace to the picture, but they looked so good together =).
But I had to experiment with it a bit, so I added Del Sol Foxy and butterflies from konad m78.
For all of you who don't know that already: Del Sol polishes change colors if they are in direct sunlight! =)
This is how it looked in shade
And this is how it looked on the sun =)
Isn't it awesome?
I sure did enjoy playing with this polish=))
What do you think about my first real french manicure? Did I go overboard?
Do you own any Del Sol polishes?
Which polish from the urban girl set would you like to see next?
And for the end I have to show you, how I played with this manicure and my orchid. It isn't perfect, but I like the way it looks =)
Have a nice day!
