Can you believe I did this french manicure myself?

Hey all — I am so proud of myself — I had to share!

For YEARS I have been paying $30+ for my french pedi at the salon.

So the other day I saw a DIY kit at the grocery store, and I figured, what have I got to lose? I am so glad I did!

The kit I bought is the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails French Manicure kit in “Sheer Romance”. I think I paid $5.50 for it. It comes with the little white sticker strips, but I had better luck doing it free hand.

First, I did two coats of pink color. Then I used the white to draw a “V” on the tip of each toe, then dabbed the middle to create an arch. I let it dry, then filled it in a bit. I finished with the top coat, and was good to go! The first application lasted for weeks! I only redid it because of grow out — the white never chipped!

I get nothing from Sally Hansen — I just wanted to pass this on because it worked so well!

Enjoy!

What to do with the extra $30 a month? This little piggy went to market…
