The new french...

 Hey all, sorry I haven't posted in a while, Windows 7 decided to update my laptop and now my wireless refuses to work. It still isn't working but luckily I can run the net through my phone. Hope it starts working again soon.

Anyway.... after watching Lisa Eldridge's latest vid on the new french mani, I just had to have a go. Check the vid HERE . The idea is, is that you paint your tip around the nail rather than across it, which is good for those with shorter nails as it gives the illusion that they are longer.

I kind of adapted my mani for my nail shape as they are naturally pretty square, but if you go for a more oval shape, this mani will definitely be a doddle.

The colours I opted for were Nude Beige and Purple Rain, both from Models own

I must say I am loving the new french, I may try this out with a matte tip next.

Also for those that don't know, I have set up a facebook page here so go check it out and click like if you want to be in the know about my up and coming competition, general chit chat and dry humoured ramblings. Also if you have any questions, there would be the place to ask.

Also for those of you that have a spare min and would like to make my day, you can also vote for me in the cosmo blog awards ( big pink button in the side bar) under beauty and then established blogger.

Also a big thank you to everyone that follows my blog, I recently passed the 2000 mark, another little milestone in my eyes so cyber hugs to you all ..x

  16. Firstly might I just say the following LOL! now thats out the way im detecting a slight nail envy from you, if you have nail issues all you had to do was say girl... if you check out my post on natural nails your be set. And lastly my nails are real....and as stated within the post this particular mani is designed to make shorter nails look longer. It would bode well with you to actually read the text in future rather than just looking at the pretty pictures.
