A few more CND Shellac French Manicure for you lovely people today!

It seems that all my friends are booked up with weddings/hen parties/holidays etc. so I have been asked for the classic french manicure far more than ever - in fact, I got it down to 45minutes with one friend - ah, so proud of myself!

Anyway, thought I'd show you a few quick pictures of some of the finished looks. At the top is Rachel, she loves a good old french manicure and she was the first to try it out with the Viva la Nails white rhinestone stickers here so naturally this time she wanted something similar but instead opted for the holographic stickers. Natalie is in the second two pictures, she liked Rachel's first french manicure so went for the same floral stickers with the little centre rhinestone. And in the final three pictures, let me introduce you to my sister-in-law Kayleigh, who went completely bling fantastic with a mock 'Swarovski' manicure. I just used rhinestones from eBay (I think they're 1.5mm but can't say for sure) and stuck them to the top coat before I cured.

I love this classic look and the stickers/diamantés add just a hint of something different. I especially like the floral sticker with the rhinestone built in as it is less raised on the nail bed and blends in better.

In all of the above I used one coat of CND Shellac Beau for the base colour and added one coat of CND Shellac Cream Puff for the tip. Then added the following nail art accordingly:

Viva la Nails White Rhinestone Stickers WS02 are £1.95 get them here
Viva la Nails Holographic (metallic) Nail Stickers NSM17 are £1.95 get them here
There are loads of diamantés on eBay but the ones I got were like these about 99p for 200.
