NOTD: Classic French

Hi everyone!

The past few days I've sported a classic french. This was my favourite look a few years ago but have barely worn it since so I thought it'd be a nice change from all the colorful nails.
For this I used 2 coats of Essie Blanc (white creme) for the tips and one coat of Essie Mademoiselle (sheer pastel pink).
I freehanded the tips and cleaned up with a manicure brush where it was needed. Don't really like those tipguides you sometimes get in french manucure sets, think they're not curved enough for my small nails and the "smile-line" turns out almost straight. I've seen some girls who get fantastic results with them tho, wish I would too. Bet it'd be a time saver!

Ignore the dry cuticles, saw it after I had moved the pictures to the computer.

It was so unusual to see my nails almost nude so I had to add a konad flower!
Used M36 and M36-1 (M36 reversed) with China Glaze Devotion.

Materials I used L to R: Nail-Tek f.II, Seche Clear, Essie Blanc, Essie Mademoiselle, China Glaze Devotion, Posché Fast Drying Top Coat, Konad M36-1 and a manicure clean up brush, this one from Debra Lynn.

I used Seche Clear instead of Orly Bonder for this, hoping it would brighten my nails some.. it didn't =(
Anyone have any good tips on how to brighten your nails? Anyone tried Color Clubs Milky White basecoat?

Thanks for reading!
