Curved French Tip With Glitter

Good Morning and happy Monday!

Welcome to February... Where the heck did January fly off too?

Did you watch the Superbowl? I did, but I don't even care! Moving along to more important matters, did you see this commercial? I've been fan girling over Tom Hiddleston (aka Loki) since I saw Thor for the first time last week. You guys feel me right? Now I just need to see all the other Avenger movies and I'll be totally in the loop (HA!).

For today's mani I did a copy cat of THIS look by Sonnela. Her blog is written in Finnish (according to Google Translate) but has a ton of flat out, hands down, amazing manicures! Go check her out! here is my best attempt at her look:

I used the following:
Revlon Nail Brightener
Nameless white striping polish
Picture Polish Ruby Blou

The pictures are pretty self-explanatory. All I did was 1 coat of Nail Brightener, free handed a curve with the white striping polish, topped with 2 more coats of brightener and traced with the glitter.

I haven't used Picture Polish Ruby Blou in a full manicure (as in an entire nail) yet, but its application here was flawless. Ruby Blou has a great glitter to base polish ratio that can be built up, but probably will work best as a layering polish. I can't wait to use it in a full nail manicure.

What do you think of the curved french vs regular french? 

Thanks for reading!



  1. Those are so cute!! Geesh, might be time to go do my nails!

    1. Thank you! You totally should get your nails done! Do you do yours yourself? I like to make time for my-self at the end of the night, after dishes, tidying up, kids in bed, ect. I sit down do a mani (or 2). Its very relaxing!

  2. I really like these! Very elegant and feminine.
    The Jaguar Good To Be Bad commercial was my favorite because of Tom Hiddleston, of course. I've been on that bandwagon for a good long time. Welcome aboard ;)

    1. Thanks! :)

      I know right!! And to think I almost missed Tom Hiddleston/Loki boat! I actually joke about how I give the Avengers franchise all our money, thanks to my older boys love from them (they've got EVERY-thing from toys, to underwear, to mugs, and clothing). But yet I never saw any of the movies... so basically I had no idea how much I love TH/Loki. Thank god that's been fixed ;)

  3. Oh i really like this mani! Its simple and unique.
    My favorite commercial was the Budweiser puppy love commercial.

    1. Thank you! I got the idea from Sonnelas blog, hers was done so elegantly. Check it out if you get the chance :).

      Cute! I loved the commercial too! I think it was my sisters favourite as well. The SB always has great commercials!

  6. I love these! I should try this curved French for a change.

    1. Thank you! I hope your try it! Its nice to change up a standard look just a lil bit, and still keep its classic look.
