French Mani

Lately the blogs I’ve been following are saying that the “French Manicure” is out of date. There’s a new spin on it. Women are experimenting with different colour combinations instead of the usual white and pinky colours. I’m all for trying something new. I say experiment away.

However, I still think the traditional French Manicure is stylish and timeless. I don’t believe it’s dated and decided to give it a try on my nails for a nice change.

When I was shopping for the Olay Pro-X a while ago, I came across an entire section of the pharmacy devoted to nail polish, and accessories. HELLO, SALLY HANSEN. Love that woman.

She has great products available. I purchased her cuticle softener, her nail hardener, nail polish wallpaper (coming to a blog post soon) and this really neat French Manicure pen. I also purchased these nail cuticle cutters. I tried my own cutting at home…not wise. They are really sharp and I cut the crap out of my nails. I think I may leave this part to the professionals :)

The pen reminds me of white-out. Remember in school? I used to draw on my nails with the stuff. I hope I wasn’t the only one!?!

Anyhow, this pen is really cool. You just shake it, hold it upside for 30 seconds and draw on your nails. It’s hard at first to get the desired thickness for the French Manicure. But after some practice, you get the hang of it.

I think it may be fun to try art on my nails next time with this pen.

I present you with my French Manicure.

Products: Nail Hardener, OPI "Sweetheart", Top Coat, Pen

Finished Look. Crappy Picture. Photography skills - lacking.

Like. Anything French, like kissing and manicures, are timeless in my books!
