I’m ever so slowly recovering from my very nasty cold, the cough is lingering, but otherwise I’m decent, just exhausted. So yay, more energy for nail art. Of course I had to completely nubbinise my nails a few days ago, since I had a series of incidents of the “reach for something, finger slips, nail catches” kind, lots of breakage.
As so often when my nails are very short, I got the urge to do something with a French tip. I considered a lavender or mint green tip, but sometimes I just want my nails to look like my nails, but better. That does not mean a band-aid/mannequin nail, those are horrible and disgusting to me. I mean a nice, sheer base and an off-white tip. No opaque nude and stark white for me.
It took quite some time for me to find the ideal combo. I’ve used both polishes before, but never together: Estée Lauder Peach Sorbet gives me that sheer peach with a bit of shimmer to disguise flaws and Nivea Calcium Power French White is my perfect natural tip white.
It’s a quick freehand version of the French tip, so it’s not perfectly even and the lines aren’t perfect. *g* Perfection is boring. I considered doing some accents, but didn’t really feel like it in the end, so a basic French for today.
