Tutorial: Pastel French Manicure

Hi Dolls :)
I hope you are all enjoying the last bit of summer. As sumer is about to end, I want to wrap it up with a very pastelly nail tutorial. It's quite simple and trust me, if I can do it, all of you girls can!
Basically, it's just your typical French manicure with a girly twist. Insead of white, I choose to use pastel colors. It really adds something to your nails and all those pretty pastel colors just make my day a lot more cheerful. So here's the tutorial :)

Step 1: Star off with clean and polish free nails. File them into the shape that you desire. Here I choose to shape them round cuz they look a lot more girly than square shape and also, I don't have much nails to work with so round is the way to go.
Step 2: Apply your favourite base coat to protect your nails. I use Essie grow stronger base coat. It's my absolute favorite and I've seen a dramatic result in the condition of my nails. It has definitely strengthen my nails a whole lot.
Step 3: Apply those French tip stickers to your nails. They make everything easier. To me, I can never do French manicure by free hand cuz my hands just shake too much. I got mine in a Sally Hansen French manicure set.

Step 4: Apply the color of your choice to the tips of your nails. Here I use Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty, China Glaze Peachy Keen, OPI Mod About You, Sally Hansen Lace Lilac, Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet.

Step 5: Apply your favorite top coat. I use Sally Hansen 4 in 1 nail treatment. I don't think it works that well as a treatment but it's very glossy so it's perfect as top coat.
Tada!! You're done. Easy peasy!! :P
