Yes, you read it right. I have nude on my nails at the moment. Yes, I also thought this day would never come… but I had a nail emergency: I came back from holidays, was going out the day after, had to be at work and had no time to sort out my nails. The previous mani was past its prime and I had to take it off… so came up with a quick fix: wear a base coat and do a red french manicure. But I loved it so much that I decided to do it properly, and they ended up being my new years’ eve manicure!
So I used Nails Inc Basil Street, a lovely nude that applies beautifully – no streaks and a solid coverage with two coats. Then I applied Colorama’s Tapete Vermelho on the tips to create the French manicure.
I am in love with this look – it is simple and so effortlessly elegant… a classic with a very little twist.
Durability has been great, seven full days – I did have a breakage, now both my thumbs are far from perfect (one is awful, hence being missed from the photos).
What do you think? I love French manis, really do… planning my next one already!

You know what – I had to look again and again bc whilst I understood it I was also not really registering this! But it is really nice and original for sure! I have never seen this and it is really classic but really different all at once…
Indeed – that is my feeling exactly! It is very simple, classic, almost discreet…but there is something about it! 🙂
