This is my mani for week 2 of the Year of Polish challenge
Week 2- French tip mani
I'm actually not too big a fan of the traditional French tip. It's just too bright to look natural, and isn't that the point of the French manicure? to make it look like you have naturally beautiful white nails? It's the natural make-up of nails.To me though, it's like natural make-up with too much blush. It just doesn't look right. So whenever I go get my nails done (twice a year with my best friend!) I always ask for the American manicure. It's exactly the same as the French, only using ivory instead of white. Tadah! (Don't get me wrong, some people can really pull of the white French tip. I'm just not one of those people)
Then last week, while at Sally's, I browsed the clearance section and found an American manicure set for $3.99!
Then I spiffed it up with some acrylic bows and some dots :)
|I actually added lines before I put on the bows...|
I didn't thing they would be so big to cover everything up. Eh well..

So there it is. My week 2 mani and it is still currently week 2! However, this means that I was unable to get a "sunshine" picture of Alpha Rainbow in Silver for you guys. One day, though, I will get you a picture! one day...
anywho, check out my Year of Polish page to see what's going on next week and to check out some other bloggers who are undertaking this massive challenge :D
Until next time ^_^
