If you know me, I hardly stray away from the classic French Manicure! It goes with everything and will always look chic whether your in formal attire or casual everyday wear! (I do however love my bright neons). To much surprise I do sometimes enjoy painting my own nails and if I have the time I will almost always give myself a french manicure. My favorite polish for the white tips is the ORLY French Manicure White Tips nail lacquer. (I got mine from Sally’s Beauty Supply). The white tips nail lacquer came in a kit with a rubberized bonding base coat & Pink Nude polish.
I find that this lacquer hardly chips and will last a very long time. It is stark white and looks beautiful if you want white tips or even just white nails. There is nothing more annoying than having a chipped manicure, and even more so if the white looks more dull or beige. I would recommend using a top-coat just for an added layer of protection for your manicure. I’ve even given myself amazing french pedicures with this product and I love how white the color payoff is, not mention the longevity.
I love this manicure, and I love this product even more. My manicure can last up to a week or more if I’m careful, and that is a huge savings compared to going to get your nails done every week or so. I love getting my nails done at a salon, but if you’re on a budget you can really get the same look doing it yourself with a little practice and the right products!
Happy Painting! Besos, Laila!
