Framed manicure in lilac and dark purple


Hi everyone.
I wanted to try the framed manicure for a while and I finally decided to do it last weekend.
I haven't done the full frame around the nail though. I will probably do it next Sunday :)

It doesn't look perfect (I was in a hurry) but I am impressed with the final effect- it took me 5 minutes.
Surprisingly the design turned out better on my right hand :)
I used Essie nail varnishes in shades: Bangle Jangle and Carry On and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

  4. I really like the colour combination and this framed manicure is not too bad considering its your first attempt at this. I think if i tried i would make a proper mess and it will annoy me so much! Thanks for sharing :) I really like the lilac colour~ xxx

  6. I just did one of these manicures on my nails lately (and a blog post as well!)!! I did a full border though rather than a three-edge like you did :)

  13. I love how this looks, but I'm scared to try because it seems hard and I have a horrible pulse. x
