The thing is, despite all my fascination with cool beach designs and other summer trends, I really like a classic French, especially at the beach, when my fingers get a bit of tan, which offsets the pink and white mani really nicely.
Hence the design of my Gelish manicure for Saint Lucia, as applied by the wonderfully gifted Metta at Nails by Mets. It's a super detailed floral and lace design where each nail is unique and different. The colours are the same as for a French: soft natural pink with white detail.
It is impossibly pretty yet very discreet, only if you pay attention will you notice my nails aren't a classic beige. I'm contrasting it with a coral pedicure. Perfect for the beach!
And of course, the ideal thing about this mani is it will last two weeks, as much as my holidays, and Metta does home visits to administer her art. How incredibly convenient!
