Video: French Nails
It's easy to find the right glaze color when the color is strong, but when you want something that looks natural and understated, it's harder to choose just by looking at the bottle. I've been wearing intense wine and red tones all winter, and now that the sun is going to start, I feel like using a soft and light color that replaces the French manicure that is no longer being seen as much. I have tried the typical Like Linen, It's in the bag and Waltz (in my time my favorites) and although they still have their charm, I wanted something that would show a little more. For my good luck, a couple of weeks ago I found the color I was looking for. This is Topless and Barefoot, a beige pink shade from Essie's French Affair spring collection. Elegant, modern and chic.I saw it in the hands of a girl during a beauty convention I attended, and since then I have not used anything else.
Maybe the chic thing has to do with the fact that this new collection is a tribute to the French glamor of the sixties (imagine Brigitte Bardot spending the summer in the south of France …). The classic French style as well as the playful joy that the pastel retro shades project were the inspiration of the collection. The result: a range of beautiful, optimistic and feminine colors that, far from being transparent, are noticeable in the hands. Whether it's Sand Tropez (a beautiful sandy shade), Coat Azure (a bright Parisian blue), Nice is Nice (a lovely lavender), Kisses and Bises, (a subtle iridescent shade), or French Affair (a rose that evokes innocence), your nails will project the beauty and glamor of that mythical time on the French Riviera.
