Over the last 4 weeks I have stopped my terrible habit of chewing my nails and skin around them, which has left me with long nails which I've only ever had twice before! Every summer I try to stop chewing my nails, and the last 2 summers I did quite well but they still kept breaking or I would bite a few. But this year things are going really well!
So to celebrate, I thought I would treat myself to some new nail polishes so I can give myself a DIY French manicure. In future I will be more daring, but as a total nail novice I wanted to keep it simples! So, I bought these three NYC nail polishes from Superdrug. They are £2.49 each or 2 for £3!
I couldn't find a French manicure 'set' with the 3 polishes in together from any brand, so I had to buy them seperately. I thought that these 2 colours were perfect. Classy Glassy clear nail polish to go on top, Oh Soho Sweet to go on as the nudey pink base, and Pinstripe White to do the French tips.
These are my nails 'au natural' after I filed them into a square shape

I did the white tips by hand, which was kind of tricky as I'm not very steady handed! Does anyone know of an easier way to paint on tips? I have some nail guide stickers but they're not very good!
