Being a nail art FAN, emphasis on being a FAN because I don't think I have the hands for those exquisite nail art some bloggers do, but I appreciate so much. It was love at first sight (not minding the photoshopped fingers of the hand models - no hand lines and wrinkles, really?) when I came across the promo pics of YSL's Fall 2010 Couture Manicure "Rock & Baroque" which will be launched this August. I liked all the combinations, gold and plum, turquoise and purple, orange and fuschia except the pink and white which I think is boring.

Last night I gave it a try. I took a quick scan of all the nail lacquers I have, and decided on OPI's Jade is the new black and Curry up don't be late. Base coat from The Face Shop, topcoat is Seche Vite.
photobooth snap of me and my french tips :)
here's a close up, I'm afraid to clean the sides because I'm a klutz and I might ruin the whole thing. hahaha! :P
I can't believe I pulled it off! I did my own french tip manicure. Patience is key. *dancing in glee* I'm definitely going to practice more to improve my nail art skills.
next time, I'm going for this style:
Belle du jour, turquoise and purple
Are you a fan of the french tip? :)
