Ooh La La - French Manicure and Shoppers Deal

What do you think, is a french manicure polished and understated or  dated and boring?
On Friday I felt in the mood for a french manicure-so I ventured up the street to a local salon and spent $15, it took less than 10 minutes and turned out pretty nice (in my opinion)! This photo was taken 4 days after and as you can see, the polish is really holding up.
Wanted to let you guys in on the deal! On the weekend I spent $50 at Shoppers Drug Mart and got  $10 gift card and a $10 Tims card. As you can imagine, this made me happy :) I think a new Essie polish will be joining my collection shortly. So go to Shoppers and stock up before the promotion ends.
After RAVING about Essie's A Cut Above I realized you guys deserved to see the aftermath. Removing the polish was a real pain. It hurt my nails-I literally did two rounds of scrubbing to get this stuff off, and haven't applied it since. Is it because my my nail polish remover is weak? I've never had a problem with Quo products. I will be accepting any tips you may have about removing glitter polish. How do you ladies re-apply this devil every week?
As always, thank you for reading. I've had a few new followers this past week so welcome to frowardfashion! I love to hear from you so feel free to tweet me :)


  1. I love french manicures! I think they are classic and simple, not boring.. yet anyway! Makes a nice change :) x

    1. Thanks Laura, I received a few compliments today. Cue a shallow confidence boost >.<

  2. so for removal of glitter like that.... soak the cotton in remover... rip the cotton pad into 2 or even 3 and press each piece onto your nail and let it sit for a good 5 minutes minimum.... or longer if you have the patience... totally works...
    what a great french mani!!! regardless of who does em / where i get them done any mani i get never lasts more than a day or 2 without chips!! :(

    1. Thanks Libby--I will try that next time!
