DIY French Manicure! Anyone can do this!

The most classic nail look and it's so easy. Some think it can be difficult but with some practice it is simple! This is great for finger and toe nails!
Products needed:
Orange stick to push down cuticles
A nail file
French polish tip guides
White polish
A sheer pink polish (I like Kim-Pletely in Love by Nicole by OPI and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shall We Dance?)
Clear top coat
*You can buy one of those French Manicure sets but make sure the pink is sheer and not too dark. I bought one by Nailene and the pink covered the white. Not good. I wasn't paying attention to that so I wanted to make you guys aware of that.

All you gotta do it put the tip guides on all nails. Paint with white and let dry. If it messes up just take some polish remover on an old makeup brush(a flat one) and clean it up. No need to start over, it can usually be fixed. Then top with one or two coats of the sheer pink. I can use two coasts of the above polishes and it looks great. :) Again, let that coat dry before adding the top coat. And boom, you're done! haha! :D
Here is what I did yesterday:

It's so cute and looks good even on short nails! My nails refuse to grow long and healthy no matter what I try. o.O But I still want cute nails. :)
I love the Kim-Pletely In Love because it has green shimmers in it. It's very subtle but enough to add an extra touch.

Hope your week is going well! Take care!!

Polka dot nails!!

This is a cute way to do your nails. It's so fast and easy and looks great on all nails lengths! Grab 2 colors and a toothpick(or dotting tool if you're fancy!!) and polka dot away.

As you can see, I chose pink and black. I painted all my nails pink (with Zoya's Kali) except my ring finger which I painted black (Revlon Black Lingerie). I did two coats of each and let dry completely. Then I dipped the toothpick in the opposite color and made random dots all over. Let the dots dry for an hour before applying the clear coat because some can be pretty thick with polish. I made the mistake of not waiting long enough and some of my dots smeared. :( Boo!
But that's it! A very easy, cute manicure!

Have fun!

Zoya polish update!!

I took these pictures on the 2nd of March. So the polish was on my nails for 5 days when the picture was taken. I also did an experiment. I put a base coat on one hand only. They don't work for me ever. But I was gifted one by Sally Hansen from my aunt, so I wanted to test it out.
Without base coat::

With the base coat::

The one with started chipping! GAH! It would have lasted so much longer! I am so impressed with Zoya! I will definitely get more!!
Do base coats work for you? Or I am the only one they don't work for?! LOL

Happy Sunday!!
