Hi ladies! Here are the actual French themed nails I sported for the night of the dinner :) I decided to go with the French flag colours and added my own interpretation into the mixture for this manicure. But I'll cut the talk and just spam the photos :D
Pinky & Index: Two coats of Maybelline Colorama Candy apple and then sponged with Mode Cosmetics Blackjack. Finally, I layered a coat of OPI Servin' up sparkle.
Ring: Two coats of Blackjack with China Glaze Ring in the red sponged at the tips.
Middle: Two coats of Orly Stone cold. I then used acrylic paint for the 'Paris' writing and the hearts. I went over the writing with a silver glitter nail art striper polish.
Thumb: Two coats of Ulta3 lily white. I used acrylic paint for the Eiffel Tower drawing, and highlighted parts with silver glitter nail art striper. I also filled in the white background with Ulta3 pot of gold.
The Eiffel Tower image was inspired by this nail art tutorial. I was surfing google images for inspiration and this was one of the results :) Up close, it doesn't look quite as great, but when I held my hands at a distance, this was a good pass ;)
Needless to say, I rather enjoyed this manicure! ♥ Have you tried French themed manicures before? What are your thoughts on my attempt? :)
Thanks for reading!
