1 Day ’til the official calendar day of SPRING!

What’s that saying?  If you build it, he will come. – Filed of Dreams

Well i think Spring needs a bit of a guided tour to the Northeast this season.  Waking up to a snow-covered lawn was not, what I was expecting 1 day to spring!  So in honor of Miss Mother Nature and the season of blooming flowers, I have chosen my GO-2, All Time Favorite Springtime Manicure.

The Classic French!

Classic French Manicure

No tape, no guides no templates or french manicure kit was used to get this look.
If you get a good striping brush you can make your own flawless french tips in seconds.

Here’s what I used to get this great looking french manicure.

  1. Base Coat – Seche Clear
  2. Base Color – Glints of Glinda NL T59 – OPI  (I used 2 coats of this color)
  3. White Tip – White NA01 –  Art Club  (it has a long thin brush which makes it really easy to paint an even curved line for your tip)
  4. Pink Overlay – In The Spot Light Pink NL F27 – OPI ( 1 coat of transparent pink )
  5. Dry Fast Top Coat – Seche Vite


And there you have it!  A beautiful french which should last me the entire week!
