Double F-lowe-rench

Hope the title was not too confusing...lemme explain: today's mani is a double french mani with flower motives. I didn't like the double french mani the first time I saw it, but I wanted to try it anyway. To enhance the chance to like it, I used a flower pattern for the french tips.
I used the new colours from Essence 42 Dress For A Moment and Catrice 530 Up In The Air for the base and french tips. The upper and lower french tips are made with the help of french guide stickers, which narrow down the mistakes I would have made if I painted it free handed. As for the flower pattern on the french tips, I used Konad stamping polish in white and image plate M41.

What are your thoughts on a double french manicure?

Have a wonderful one!!!


  1. Love the stamping image! x

  2. OOOhhh "French" + "Flower", love the title ^_^
    This mani is super cute, I like the flower pattern!!

  3. I love this look, i haven't tried anything like this before but will def give it a go now! xx

  4. @Nina ~ Thanks! In fact, I had to keep my head cool while swatching this...all that taping, swatching, stamping and waiting XD

    @Olivia ~ Me too! Too bad this flower pattern on the Konad image plate M41 isn't big enough for a full nail design.

    @FOREVER '92 ~ BINGO! You're good, hmmm..I have to think of a tougher one next time =P

    @Nicole - Top To Toe ~ You should try it. It may consume time and patience, but it is totally worth it! Enjoy!

  5. It's very original... I'll try it!
    I'm a new follower! ;-)

  6. Very cute mani! I love how you reversed your index finger :)

  7. This is such a neat manicure! I love the pattern instead of just using a plain band. :)
