As a former nail bitter, I'm quite proud to say that I'm now able to grow my nails out long enough to get a french manicure. Not that I ever do. I don't really care for the traditional French manicure. I typically stick either with a poppy coral, a barely there pink, a neon magenta, a fire engine red, a taupe-y kahki, or a deep eggplant. Having a fresh manicure is one of the things that keeps me from chomping away. Once the polish starts to chip then I start to pick at it and then it's game over. I normally paint my nails myself, only visiting a salon for a special occasion. However these images from YSL for their new Manucure Couture Duo Nail Polishes have me rethinking things. Especially that last picture with the gold tips. While I am pretty good at a regular manicure I think I lack the steady hand for this kind of work. I see a trip to the salon in my near future.
