I have to say, I virtually have no call for the classic French manicure in either polish or Shellac in the past few years. It was only when I was doing my Mum's nails for a special occasion I decided to give it a bash for practice as it's been so long.
To be fair I was mainly concerned that Shellac Cream Puff would wrinkle as that's half the battle! I also used Shellac Beau and Konad plate M26 for the ring finger detail along with a tiny dot of glitter polish to the centre of each flower.
Although French manicures aren't something I would wear myself, I can appreciate how classic and timeless they are for others.
