My First French Mani~NOTD

Hi all,

Howz your week going??… Today’s NOTD is using Innisfree nail polish I received in my June Envy Box. Shade-3, there were 4 shades I guess pink, light pink, orange and grey and I got 2 shades dark and light pink… why two u asking? 😛 here is the story.

So coming back to my NOTD I did french manicure with a twist which is kinda in these days 😛 this is my first ever basic nail art  which I did on my OWN. M not at all a nail art person though I enjoy seeing the pics on my Insta but I cant imagine that on my nails. All I like is french manicure or plain painted nails nothing fancy.  Hope you like it 🙂

Talking about the texture of the polish, its thick and sticky which I dislike. Good part is it doesn’t pool around. Next time when I’m using it I think I will add a few drops of Zoya Renew Polish Thinner.

Tools Used:

  1.  Konad Stamping Tools which includes- M19 plate, Rubber Stamp and a Scraper.
  2. Vega Brush to clean the edges. Mine is not dense, make sure you use a denser one coz it makes the whole process of cleaning the edges easier.

Steps:

  1. Put some polish on the image plate according to the size and scrape of the extra polish with the help of a scraper making an angle of 45 degrees with the plate otherwise the plate will become messy. Don’t apply too much of pressure otherwise the polish which we want to stamp will also come off.
  2. Immediately wipe off the polish on the scraper using a tissue paper.
  3. Press the stamp on the image plate firmly.
  4. Just roll on the stamp over your nails wherever you want your design to be. In this case its a french mani so it has to be on the tips. Start from the end of your tip… roll.. roll (make sure you roll it straight otherwise you will end up making it a diagonal) and done.

After this process I just layered more of the polish to get an intense color and to clear the edges I used my Vega Eyeshadow Brush which was not at all dense but it was handy at that time. Just dip it in acetone and start wiping out the extra polish and cleaning the edges.

So this is for the first time I’ve worn a pastel shade on my nails from routine pinks reds and oranges. Its a subtle nude shade leaning towards pink. Its quite thick in consistency which I dislike as it makes application a bit difficult. Best part is dries quickly without being streaky.
