Fancy French

French Manicure

Yesterday my sister's boyfriend, Andrew, graduated from college.  For the ceremony, I wore a french manicure.  I free-handed the white tips without nail guides using the Kiss nail art white polish, so they aren't perfect, but I think they look pretty nice, especially with the rhinestones.  Of course, the rhinestones came off while I was straightening my hair, so my nails ended up being a basic french mani - but still fancy!  I haven't worn a french manicure for a while (mainly because my index nail keeps getting broken); this reminds me how much I like this look.

Congratulations Andrew!

Congrats to Andrew! I have never done a French before. I want to try freehanding it one day.

Great French. If you can freehand like that, you don't need guides. :D

Congratulations, Andrew!
