Hello Loves. Today's mani is one that I consider a bit of a fail. I love the design, but I'm not really happy with the color combination. Before we get to the mani, I'm happy to announce that Couture Gel Nail Polish has set up a discount code just for you! Enter "ManicTalons" at checkout for 10% off!
Ok, so onto the nails. I was going for soft and subtle, but I think I went a little too soft on the base color and definitely too soft on the leaves. As usual, details to follow.
I started with a base of Couture Francais. Francais is a gorgeous, creamy nude pink that is the perfect base for a classic french manicure.
I added some nice blobs with a dotting tool using Couture Lavender Lace. Lavender Lace is a sweet lavender cream.
I then added petal details with Couture Ooh La La French and leaves with Couture Silky Sea Foam. Finally, I brushed Couture French Affair over the roses to give them a touch of shimmer. These colors are in my swatch gallery if you missed the original posts. Want to see a closer shot?
What do you think? Keeper or fail?
