Manic(ure) Monday: The Golden Frame


Are you ready for a new manicure I have never tested before? Pastel and glitter junkies watch out, this manicure will be for you and for all of those who like a simple manicure with an interesting twist. Let's go:

Start off with the colour you want the "frame" of your nails to be.



Try to paint your nails to the very edges


Now take the top colour and only paint the middle of your nails. This works best with a covering nail polish that comes with a rounded brush like for example Essie.






What I used:
Manhattan Blogger Edition Mode Pilot 10M
Essie Navigate Her
(ring - DIY)


What do you think about the frame manicure? I've seen a lot of these lately so I thought I´d try it as well. It also looks great when you take the bright and the dark shade of a colour. Which colours would you use for this nail style and do you have any recommendations on which manicure I could try next? This can be a manicure you saw somewhere or just something that has been on your mind for a while, just tell me, it would love to try it for you!

  10. I really like this on you but I am not so sure about it for me. I am a real neat freak and a bit of a perfectionist (AKA 'old' and 'boring' lol) I would be thinking 'oh no I have forgotten to paint the edges' every time I looked at it lol. This is why I like reading blogs though, I like seeing new things and even if I daren't try them I love to see how they look on others. That ring is so cute by the way, I could dare wear that, even being as old and boring as I am! :-p hehehe
