Negligee-French-Manicure2

Since my last post reviewing my collection of CND Vinylux Weekly Polishes I’ve been asked by readers as to which color I would recommend for a pink and white french manicure.

I decided to take pics of my latest french mani using Negligee for my base and Studio White for my tip.
If you’re looking for a sheer base I highly recommend using negligee.  It’s extremely sheer but it has a hint of pink opalescence to it and when you catch it in the light it adds a subtle pink tone to your nails.  I absolutely love it!

If you’re looking for a natural base without any pink then Lavishly Loved would be your pick.  From the appearance in the bottle Lavishly Loved looks like a creamy pink but in fact it goes on transparent.  (I dont’ have any photos of a french with Lavishly Loved but I can put one up sometime soon)

One tip I’d like to add.  If you want an extra shiny finish, then add 2 coats of the Vinylux Clear Top Coat.  One coat just won’t cut it.  Especially if you’re used to using Seche Vite.
Here’s a few more pics of my nails.  All of these shots were taken indoors.

    I don’t claim im an expert, don’t make the formula & didn’t have the same outcome as you. Sorry you had such a poor experience. I still stand by the product and my review, which was focused on the base color and not the white tip color.

    I purchased the studio white, the negligee and the top coat based on your recommendation. The studio white is WAY too sheer to work as a french manicure tip. Even three coats and it didn’t look white. Don’t know why I took advice from a random person with a blog on the internet, out $7.00
    Thanks for nothiing

      Ps.. I just tried the Studio White again to see if I had the same problems. It most definitely is a softer white but is also fine to be used as a tip for a french. If you’re used to using Alpine Snow from OPI or even Azature Faint White (which I swear by) then you will be dissapointed by the brightness. Its not as bright as a stark white polish and if thats what you were looking for then u might as well stick to OPI and use the CND Vinylux top coat over the top for the 7day wear.
