Konad/Fauxnad French - M19, C02, Zoya Sari

Another simple French mani today, you know how I love French's, especially with the odd Konad embellishment.


I used Zoya's Sari for the base colour, a very pretty sheer pinky peach shade for a natural look.  Well, more natural looking than my usual white sheer Lucy, (my favourite one, even if it is not as natural as Sari).  Two coats for the base, then tips stamped with konad M19 and white, then one more coat of Sari over the top to soften the tips.


I then used GCOCL fauxnad plate C02 for the design.  These are great plates, I got them in an 18 plate set recently off Ebay.  They are the hexagon plates that include the famous Hello Kitty image.  This plate has the reverse designs too, so great for each hand, love that!   I used Konad Princess special polish in Violet Pearl for the delicate floral/dots design.


Very happy with the result, though I think I went one coat too many on Sari, made the tip look a bit grubby ;o)  Will try this one again with my fav French base Zoya Lucy

I have a question about the French tips, do you use a sticker guide in addition to the Konad M19 or do you free hand it? I try to use the M19 plate but the tips always end up slanted and imperfect. Help Please! sewnotwork(at)gmail(dot)com
