My Kerry Washington French Tips

I Love Scandal, it’s my favorite TV show, and I love Kerry Washington, I think that she is not only a great actress, but always looks so elegant and self-confident.  Parade Magazine had an article about her a few weeks ago, and in one of the pictures, she was wearing this manicure.  It looked perfect on her, it was so beautiful and understated.  So I thought that I would try it on myself.  For the base, I used one coat of OPI Samoan Sand, and then hand drew the tips on with Essie Bikini So Teeny.  It’s much plainer than the manicures that I normally wear, but I thought that it turned out really great, even though it didn’t make me beautiful and elegant – LOL!!

I liked it so much that I thought that I would try it again.  One reason that I like this style is that it is so fast and easy to do, and I was rushed for time.  For this one I chose one coat of Revlon Pink Chiffon for the base and OPI Don’t Talk Bach To Me for the tips.  I didn’t think that this color combination was as good as the blue, so I put a coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets on, just to bling it up a little.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
