Simple French Manicure...

Hi girls,

Today I have a simple French Manicure to show you...

Phone picture


I achieved this manicure with a French Manicure set from Essence:

I've bought this set about 10 years ago, I think, and I liked it so much, that I immediately bought two more back up-sets. The white polish in this little set is very good to make French tips with! These bottles contain 5 ml and the set was available in a milky pink (way more pastel and less pink then showed in the picture above!) and in a peachy set. I don't exactly remember how much this set was, but it couldn't be more than €3,99.

Ofcourse I used a basecoat, my favorite, Orly Nailtrition!

It actually is a nailhardener, but I always use it as a basecoat. It works wonders, I really have tried a lot of hardeners, but this is my alltime favorite!



BTW: Did you noticed my nails are a lot shorter??




Here's what happened...


I've accidentally cut my nail with a razorblade...! Such a big chunk out of my middle nail!
And it's my lefty, my photo-hand! Ohh nooooo... !

So yeah... I had to file them way shorter :(
In the 1st picture you still can see a little dent, but hopefully they soon grow a bit longer.

Do you like the simple and plain French Manicure?

Thanks for dropping by!

Sparkled 'Up tips...

Hi girls!

Hope you're all doing well...

I a bit tired because of all the stress about selling our house and buying our new house, but I hope it soon is all over and we can start enjoying it!

Now... on to my nails...

Today I want to show you OPI Servin' Up Sparkle from the Serena Williams collection...



Base: OPI Bubblebath (2 coats)
Tips: OPI Servin' Up Sparkle (2 coats)
Topcoat: INM Out The Door




First I applied 2 coats of OPI Bubblebath, then I applied OPI Servin' Up Sparkle with the brush only on my tips. I let it dry for a while and then decided to sponge the next coat on. That way the tips wouldn't get "as wet" as they would when applied with the brush, and the glitters would adhere better.


OPI Servin' Up Sparkle contains very small glitter particles and some larger glitters. Very pretty!!


See how pretty and shiny the sparklies are? :)


It's been a while since I wore a french manicure, and I used to have french manicure all the time, so I thought it would be nice to only sponge the tips this time.

I'm wearing this manicure for 3 days now, and I seriously can't stop watching the sparkly glitters!

I ♥ this manicure!

Do you like french manicures?

Bye, bye acrylics... Hello natural nails!

Hi everyone!

Last weekend I lost a nail... I don't wear tips, but the whole acrylic layer on my nail popped off...
So I've had it a bit with acrylics. I didn't felt like it to fix it, and about an hour later I lost another nail.
That's when I decided to get them off, and leave it like that...

Ofcourse my natural nails are very thin and flexible at the moment. But hey, they haven't had oxygen for about 2,5 years! I decided to buy some of the Sally Hansen strengtheners and nurture my nails with my buffing file, Solar Oil and handcream. And a couple of days later they actually looked very good!

So bring on the nailpolish, bring on Konad and let's see how they look now!

Don't mind the little bubbles you see here, it's caused by the Sally Hansen Strengthener; you don't see them irl...


Here's what I did:
1 - Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener (Thin Nail Strengthener) : 2 coats
2 - OPI Bubblebath : 2 coats
3 - Stamping French Manicure with Beautiful Scratchers White + Konad M19
4 - Seche Vite Topcoat : 2 coats

And now they are much, much less bendable (is that even a word?) and stronger!






This picture is showing some tipwear, because I always do my nails late at night. Actually right before I go to sleep. And because of that, I don't have time to install my lightbox and camera etc. So I often take pictures a day (or 2) later. And that's why this picture is showing some tipwear.

But, I must admit (although I'm a real acrylic-lover) I kinda like my natural nails. It was weird to see my own nails after such a long time. But I like them, so I think I'm going to keep them this way for a while.

Here they are, the little bastards... I popped them right off... :)

I wonder how long it takes for I got my first nail broken :)

Since I'm all into natural nails now, I can use some tips and advice: what's your favorite nail hardener or strenghtener? And what's your nailcare routine? Let me know...!

Have a nice evening!
