My first French


First of all, a bit late but happy new year! I hope 2011 brings you all lotsa good things, and polish of course! :)
My life has been a bit rough lately, but I hope to be able to do more with my nails again and post more often from now on too. I haven't looked at new collections or other blogs for a while now either, but that'll come again in time I think. And I'd like to say thanks to Miranda and Crystaliciousss, who both tagged me even though I've been so inactive lately, I appreciate it! :)

For today's mani, I tried something new, a French manicure. I bought 3 of the Urban Baroque's polishes from Catrice, hoping they'd give full coverage but they didn't (see, I'm really not up-to-date anymore haha). The white of my nails isn't as neat as I'd like, so that's why I decided to try out a French.

Now me and those French mani stickers are a bad combo, my nails turn into a sticky mess with chunks of paper when I use those, so I tried to do it without. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with the result :)
I used China Glaze Snow for the white, 3 coats of Catrice Rock Barock, Konad white for stamping and plate m73. It's very rainy today, so I only have lightbox pics from this mani.

I think it turned out nice, but I'm so not used to the whole French thing, it feels so white even with the Catrice on top! But I guess I'll get used to it, lol.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
