Feeling a tad girlie today

So every once in a while, I'll crave just a simple regular french mani. I really only like to do them when my nails are shorter, and then add a little something extra to make it fun. I had ordered some nail art items off of eBay, and when they came in, I just had to use the little bows! They are the perfect size IMO, and just make me feel so girly on this mani, but not over the top :) This is the mani, that left with me on my weekend getaway.
For this I used 2 coats of 10 - Pinky Promise, #415 for my base, and OPI Alpine Snow Matte for the tips.


This was pre bow :)


Here is what the nail art wheel looked like. I can't wait to use the pearls!!! Now, they are messy, and soooo dang staticy, that when you go to slide it open, it looks like little bee bee's are flying out. Grrrr, but I finally managed to get them all settled down. I might even end up switching them all out.

  10. I've heard a lot about 3-D Nails being in now! I can see why! This is SO fun! And pretty! I've seen some that are just too much going on, but I like that this is simple and elegant! How is the bow attached? Just nail glue? I'd be afraid it'd pop off my nail...I want to try it though!

  11. That's adorable! I've always thought French manis with the classic white tips were kind of boring and overdone, but this is really sweet.
