Base colour - Romantique As opposed to the pinkier Beau, Romantique has a more natural coloured finish although some find it a little chalky. I like it for the very natural finish but if clients want something more prominent, I would choose Beau or, Romantique combined with Beau - see the pin on this board to see what this looks like.
This is what an American Manicure should look like, but why do they always insist on painting the pink polish over the subtle white tips. I should take this pic next time I go to the nail salon. Ultra soft American tips.....bee-yew-tee-ful!!!
~ Now that I've almost perfected the routine, I just L-O-V-E French manicures. It helps knowing that I can do them myself at home. This prevents me from going to salons where the instruments aren't always clean/sanitized. ~
