{theembellishment} :: just-say-no-to french manicure}


video
{as seen on the 'gram}

if you know me...then you know how i feel about french manicures. now, let me start by giving a {disclaimer} 
::

a french manicure is classic. a french manicure is elegant. a french manicure is manicuring 101.
i know this & i believe all of this...but sometimes, a french manicure can be {dare i say} boring. 

ok! i've said it. it's out in the open for the internet to know!!! ...with that being said, if i don't say so myself - & i do, i can give a heck of a french manicure. but today it was time for a remix. 

don't let society suck you in people...the pink & white is not the end all be all of manicures. the above is proof of that. ;)

{theembellishment :: quick stitch manicure}


oct - nov :: i rocked almond-shaped gel nail extensions {#webhautenailextend}, which quickly grew out to a gel overlay (my nails grow pretty quickly). i loved the simplicity of the quick-stitch manicure, innovative & easy to replicate. try it. tag me. 
gracias.
