This is normal, right?  Had an appointment today and thought it best to put on my “I’m not a total weirdo” front (if I’m asking you a serious question I don’t need you staring at me like I’ve got two heads) and went for a simple light french.  The base is Borghese Cannoli Cream, 2 coats over a white base (probably should have gone for 3 but I was running out of time), then used some Kleancolor White for the tips.

    Not strange! In fact, this is my idea of “mannequin” nails. I think it makes fingers and nails look longer. One of my favorite manis to do, and you pull it off so well!

    Hahaha..better safe than sorry!! yeah we need to sometimes have normal nails for the sake of others not popping their eyes out!!

    I love the base colour!

    Ooh, I like it. I’ve never opaqued-out any of my sheers for french mani’s, but I think I might give it a whirl.

    You always have such great ideas. ^___^

    Must have been a really important appointment-cause for me-I’d still wear my freaky nails!! I do love a classic french though-very elegant-but so NOT NERDY!

    Interesting–like Aren says, I never thought to do a white base under a French mani sheer.

    I know, it’s super weird, right?! My nails felt totally foreign… working on something with a ton of color right now. :D

    I like french manicures so much better with an opaque base than a sheer one! good job! lol
