Fancy Dancy Nails

I have to admit, I love the look of a French Manicure for special occasions. (Okay, any occasion.) I used to get fake faux nails for high school dances and cheer leading events, and then for my wedding. But who can afford that now?

Plus, I’m liable to scratch one of my kids, which just wouldn’t do. So I need to keep my natural, God-given nails. But that doesn’t mean they can’t look pretty.

I’ve used this product in the past, but was just recently reminded of it by one of my sisters. You can do your own French Manicure for pennies at home:


Kit contains:
1) Fashion-forward French shades that won’t chip or fade.
2) Hard As Nails French White for pure white tips.
3) Self-adhesive nail guides for mistake proof application.
4) Hard As Nails UV Top Coat to help prevent chipping, splitting & yellowing.
5) Easy step-by-step instructions.

Special Ingredients:
Pro-Vitamin B5 and antioxidant Green Tea to moisturize and nourish.

Here’s my real-life demo:


(Yes, they stayed chip-free for several days.)

Kinda fun and very fancy!

  1. Ooolala! Tres chic! 🙂

    I’m just impressed that you can draw a straight line. When I’ve tried doing an at-home french manicure, I’ve failed miserably.

  2. Oooh I have to try this – I LOVE french polish and those guides make all the difference in the world!

  3. Good thing I’m going to our favorite store today. I just whacked all my nails, so I’ll have to wait a bit to try it out. Can’t wait!

    nice! i’ve always tried the kind with tape to help make the line straight… but i can’t get the tape on straight!

  5. Yeah, I’d DEFINITELY need the guides. Might be trying this one!
