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!

Fancy Fuchsia

Hi girls!

Hope you're all doing well... I am!

Today is a shorty...

Orly Fancy Fuchsia (2 coats)

I don't know if it's just me, but the consistency of this polish is a bit weird... It's super opaque but also very thick and blobby... Quite hard to work with actually! But it does even out on the nails a bit. I was a bit in a hurry, so this is definitely not the best polishing (I was on my way to a birthdayparty but HAD to paint my nails, so this is the result, hihi!)

Fancy Fuchsia is a very pretty (almost) neon pink, so a bit hard to capture with a camera (or actually this time with my new phone: Samsung Galaxy S2) but I think almost everyone in blogland does know how pretty pink this color in real life is...  I really ♥ this pink and I'm enjoying wearing this for 2 days (but now it's a bit chipping, unfortunately, because I would have worn it longer if I could :)

Do you have Fancy Fuchsia in your stash?

Thanks for stopping by!
