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.
