Golden French Manicure

I am going to New York City in a few days, and this past weekend I have been slowly getting ready. The first thing on my checklist? Get my nails done. I love French manicures, but I can only get them done when I go to the nail salon. I can never recreate that polished and precise line myself. However, this week I discovered a game changer: French manicure in a box! It is Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects: French Mani. I decided to purchase the golden glitter colour, and I must say, I am very happy I did.


For the base colour I used one of my favourite nail polishes, by the Swiss brand, Mavala. It is a beautiful ballerina pink colour called, “Rose” (#328). After letting my nail polish dry, I applied the golden nail polish strips, and then on top of that, I applied the clear strips. (Everything you need, including a nail file, is included in the box).  It only took a few minutes to apply, and once I was done with the application, I just filed away the excess nail polish strip. I was very pleased with the results!



This weekend I also purchased the loveliest teacups, by the brand Robert Gordon Australia. This canary yellow teacup has golden details around the rim, and is such a pretty addition to my teacup collection. Teacups add a little bit of charm to any room they are placed in. I especially adore how perfectly this teacup matches my French manicure.

I mustn’t forget to mention how yummy these strawberries and cream jelly beans were, as well as the heart-shaped peach candies. They too matched my new teacup very well. Overall, I had a lovely weekend, and my French manicure turned out very nicely, just in time for my trip to NYC! (Have I mentioned how super excited I am for that?) I can’t wait to share my upcoming adventures with you all! Do you have any fun and exciting plans?

All the best,
