NOTD: Holographic French manicure

I had this idea for a while, and wanted to try it with my newt stint of false nails. I love the Kiss full cover nails, they have great shape and wear, plus you get a box of 100 assorted sizes for £5.49. These are the oval ones, you also get square and sport ones as well. I filed mine a bit squoval this time, looks a bit more natural with my cuticles. It's remarkable how a nice set of nails makes me feel better! :)

I put on 2 coats of franken nude pink "Cotton Candy" and did the tips with the incredibly holographic and microglittery Isadora "51 Sparkling Ice" and then the chunkier holographic Essie "Carnival". A slick of Sally Hansen MegaShine and I was off taking pictures!

Next time I will try this and make a strong white French tip first to make the glitter stand out even more!

This is a very pretty look on you. It's amazing how nice the false nails are. They used to be thick and ugly. The shapes look real. Pretty clean look.
