French Manicure

To tell you the truth, I am a simple person who doesn't really care so much about fashion. But when this french manicure became popular, I promised myself that I will have my nails done like that. It is simple and yet looks elegant to me. Anyway, this nail fashion got me interested and because of that...I looked at Wikipedia what this french manicure is...and this is what I have found out:

French manicures are manicures designed to resemble natural nails, and are characterized by natural pink base nails with white tips. The tips of the nails are painted white while the rest of the nails are polished in a pink or a suitable nude shade. French manicures may have originated in eighteenth-century Paris and were popular in the 1920s and 1930s. Like any style they are chosen for a variety of aesthetic reasons. Many choose them because they are very simple and give nails a natural, healthy look and can visually correct or perfect otherwise imperfect nails.

By the way, the nails on the photo is not mine...just borrowed it at Google :-).

that used to be my one secret pleasure. I bite my nails, so if there is anything that makes me feel more feminine it is good set of fake french manicures! They need to be like five dollars a set so I can start doing them regularly again!

As a mom we sometimes forget about ourselves. Getting my nails done every couple of weeks is the one thing that I can do that is JUST for me! Not only does it give me time out of the house, it makes me feel pretty. lol
