Classic French Manicure with Flowers

Hello dear reader! I decided to franken a nude polish that suits my liking. I have several nude nail polishes but I find them either too dark or too light for my skin tone. From my stash, I used an old vanilla color nail polish that has a very subtle pink shimmers and added a few drops of chocolate brown nail polish. I started with a few drops first and added a couple more until I have the shade that I wanted to achieve.

I'm happy to have my first franken nail polish!

A close-up to show its very subtle shimmers.

It's a bit sheer using two coats but since I'm longing for a classic french manicure I started to paint white on the tips. I added pink flowers, the inner girly in me that kicked in.

I used the following:

Franken Nude nail polish
Caronia White Satin
Pink Acrylic Paint
Gold Acrylic Paint
Top Coat
Dotting Tool
Striper Brush

I hope my nail designs will serve as an inspiration the next time you'll get your nails done. I admit that I don't have a lot of readers on this blog but if you are reading this now, thank you. Just the fact that you visited my page is truly appreciated.
