French Boudoir

Yes not only do I sketch out nail designs on paper I give them names.

This one seemed to be the red light district version of your standard french manicure so... 
FRENCH BOUDOIR seemed to fit so much better.

I started with a basecoat, two coats of China Glaze Heaven. My "goto" neutral for french manicures.

Once everything was throughly dry I used bundlemonster stamping plate m57.

I don't use konad polishes, I hear they are amazing... and blah blah blah... but this girl tries to save money, and in saving money I use Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in "Black Out". It's tricky but I've been able to use most polishes with high pigment content for stamping just took time to figure it out how to do it.

So with the stamping plate, I stamped the fishnet pattern from nailbed to 1/2 the length of my nail, then on the same m57 plate I used the lace pattern right below were the fishnet pattern ended.

I topped everything off with a coat of Seche Vite. 

Here is the sketch and the result, your thoughts?


loved the way these turned out, perfect for a little black dress and a night out.

Sneak Peek for the next manicure....

That's all for today,
Love and chip-free polish to you all.
