Find your very own royal nail polish

Colours, we use to express ourselves and personal opinions. Some are ecstatic to wear as many colours as possible and others are more the black-and-white type. I like to wear both styles. It all depend of the occasion. The reason why I talk about colours, again, is because I had an idea which implies colours -to get the style of Mary you also need to find the right nail polish. Right?! I am influenced by the classic and simple style also when it comes to nail polish. This means I often wear french manicure or my favourite colour red. The Crown Princess is not that kind of woman who wear nail polish that often, but when she does I'm always stunned. Mostly, she wear shades of red, purple and coral. I hope this will inspire you to find your very own royal colour.

Official announcement of engagement, October 8th 2003

Have you ever tried a French Manicure? Well, if not now is the time. At several occasions Mary has showed up with a French Manicure. I decided to do a little guide to all of you who just fell in love with her manicure and need to do it yourself. The good thing about this, is that you don't necessarily need to have long nails. There are several different ways to make this manicure. Below I share two possible way of doing your nails. Personally, I prefer option no. 2. You can also do it with other colours for a more fun look!


No. 1 -French Manicure for beginners

What you need:
* File
* Base coat
* White pen -herehereherehere & here
* Cream/blush nail polish
* Top coat

1) Shape your nails with a file. A trick is to shape the nails as the shape of your cuticle. 

2) Apply one layer of base coat and let it dry for about 5-10 minutes. Often you are told to use the cream/blush nail polish as base coat. That is not something I recommend. I explain why later. 

3) Shake the white tip pen gently before use. Then simply draw the white tip on the upper part of your nail. For this method, stickers are not needed. A pen is very easy to use and does also give a fine result. Let it dry 5-10 minutes. 

4. Now you apply one layer of the cream/blush nail polish. This gives a much more flawless result than if you had used it as base coat. Let it dry at least 10 minutes.

5. Apply one layer of the clear top coat to make it last longer. Done!  


No. 2 -French Manicure for practitioners

What you need:
* File
* Base coat
* White nail polish -herehereherehere & here
* Cream/blush nail polish
* Clear top coat

1) Shape your nails with a file. A trick is to shape the nails as the shape of your cuticle. 

2) Apply one layer of base coat and let it dry for about 5-10 minutes. Often you are told to use the cream/blush nail polish as base coat -not something I recommend.

3) Sometimes these kit comes with stickers that'll help you make step 3 much easier. So, apply the sticker on your nail to create that fine white line. Apply white nail polish on the tip of your nail. This white line can also be created without the sticker and only by hand. Though this takes a little more practice. Let it dry for at least 10 minutes. 

4) Now apply one layer of the cream/blush nail polish. Let it dry about 8-10 minutes.

5) Finally, apply one layer of clear top coat. You can apply one layer a day to make them last longer.
