NOTD – ‘Cardinal’ French tips

Hi everyone 🙂 

While going over one of my favourite gossip sites, I came across this picture of a gorgeous Korean celeb with fabulous nails. I found out her name is Yoon Eun Hye, and I tried to replicate her red french tips using Cardinal by Nivea- a red creme I don’t use very often that has just the right opacity to do the job.

I think the look looks much better on her nails, but I had fun wearing them!

I freehanded the tips so they’re not the best- Also True Blood was on and I was SO absorbed with the TV that I didn’t notice my top coat dragging some of the red off, hence the red streak on my pinky… oops


Also, all of you fellow nail fanatics *must* check out Sophy Robsons blog! She is a celebrity manicurist in England who designs the most utterly fab looks for magazines and runways, her blog is full of inspiration! I came across it while looking for good polish retailers in the UK for when I travel in August, and I ended up spending ages looking at all the gorgeous ideas. After I tried this mani I saw her post about Sharon Stone in Casino where she sports red tips too, and I can’t wait to try the candy pink nails with red tips inspired by Sharon Tate in Valley of the Dolls. Enjoy!

    I love this colored French manicure. Very pretty and different. You have beautifully shaped nails. I also love TrueBlood. I was all set to watch it last night and it was a repeat. I’d already watched it twice.
