A little French 

Sometimes only a classic will do. 

By that I mean French manicure, recently I feel this style has been put on the back burner in favour of nail art and trend shades. But classic style never really goes out of favour. 

So here it is, the first #SundayNails classic French. I have to admit I love it. Super simple, it makes you feel confident and rather chic. Embracing the simplicity really gives confidence against the everyday trend. 

I was surprised at the amount of compliments I received, a lot, when sometimes the latest trend mani only can provide one or two mentions. When this look is done well it really polishes the first impression you give. All polish does to some extent, especially a bold red, but this especially. 

I have not yet decided on a wedding nail effect but after having this look for awhile it is certainly one for the shortlist. 

The mani itself is a combination. A Seche Vite Base and Top Coat. The French – my go to. Rimmel French Manicure. The white belongs to OPI, they have such a brilliant array. This was Alpine Snow.    


When was the last time you went French?

The French may not be on trend but it just so happens to be one of those looks that doesn’t need to be on trend to be “in”. You have great taste!
