♥ French Mani week @ Deez Nailz - S.H. 'Candy Lace' with Black Tipz♥

~ 2 coats of Sally Hansen 'Candy Lace' ~
~ Nailene 'Black French Tip Pen'~
~ Wet N Wild 'Sparked' ~

I love how the pieces of .....fleck (?).... look in this antique Sally Hansen polish 'Candy Lace'. This polish is not as dense glass-flecked as the China Glaze Summer Collection, and I think that the pieces are alot bigger and more random sized. I love this polish and am sad that I 'wasted' it trying to whip up some frankens ~ I do hope to find something similar in the future to replace it.

For this mani I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen 'Candy Lace', waited for it to dry, then applied a coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat and let it dry totally. I didn't want to add anything more to this mani, but of course I had to do something..... I then used Nailene French Tip Pen in Black, { Freehand- this time} and waited for that to dry. I then applied 2 coats of Naielne Acrylic Strong Top Coat to the black tips only, let it dry then finally added a thin line of Wet n' Wild "Sparked" . I added a layer of T.C over the whole thing = CUTE! I did not do a thorough clean-up job - I am trying to be kinder and gentler to my cuticles these days......

I am very happy with this mani and will be doing this again with my Pure Ice 'Strapless' for the smile line & a more blue-er, duo-chrome base. The shape of the applicator tip of the Nailene French Mani pen makes doing 'french' tips very easy - this one I did free hand because I planned on doing a stripe of glitter across my nail's smile line. I am hunting for the French Tip Pen in white this week = word is Shoppers (drug store = CANADA) has them with a free nailene Top Coat so I am hoping to snap one up - I will kick myself later if they are sold out before I get one!
