Thursday's Talons (A First For Me!)

Currently watching: Strictly: It Takes Two

Good morning girls! Today I'm very excited to show you my manicure as I do believe it's a first for me:

I used a white polish for my tips and then applied a coat of Eyeko Petite Polish for my French manicure. I rarely do French manicures as I find it difficult to freehand the tips and I always find they chip quickly or end up with holes in them for some reason. There are quite a few holes and smudges in the tips of this manicure but I don't think they're *too* obvious...

I then decided to stamp using a purple Miss Sporty polish and MASH plate m25. I originally intended to use only the butterfly image but I was nervous about messing up the stamp placement so I decided to use the floral image on alternate nails as I felt there was more freedom for placement error with this image.

Overall I was very happy with this manicure and it's definitely a style which I will wear again. I loved typing at work yesterday and catching flashes of my white tips. It's a very clean manicure I think.

What do you think of this type of manicure girls? Is it something you'd try yourself?

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. This manicure is perfect! It's so clean and smart but pretty at the same time. I am a BIG butterfly fan I have 3 butterfly tattoos and am almost always wearing butterfly jewellery somewhere about my person so a style like this would be perfect! xx

  4. I am not a fan of french manicures, because I get bored with them after a few hours, but with the stamping you did it looks absolutely gorgeous! :) That, I would wear ;)
