French Manicure Revisited

I think my last "classic" french manicure was about a year ago.  I enjoy them so much!  I have always thought they were so clean and pretty.  I have been doing my nails since I was in high school and would you believe that I never knew what "pink & white" was until about 3 years ago!  I always wondered why, when I had acrylics done, mine were never very pink, but more of a beige color.  Anyway, a french manicure is the driving force behind my love for nail art.  So, in my desire to see the sun amongst all of these cold, windy and snowy days, I did another french manicure.  They make me happy, what can I say?  I used some old and unused polishes too.
  • Wet 'n' Wild Never Been Kissed
  • Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau
  • UNKOWN PINK (does anybody know what this is?)
  • China Glaze Fairy Dust
I started this mani with 2 coats of Take Me To Your Chateau then a layer of Seche Vite.  Once that was dry I did a gradient of the 2 pinks and the white.  Let me just say that this white has ALWAYS been my favorite for french manis.  I'm pretty sure I have had this polish for more than 5 years now.  
I applied the gradient with a make-up sponge as I always do.  This is about 4 passes on the nails.  Once that was dry, I added a coat of the Fairy Dust then another layer of Seche Vite to seal it all in.
I am so in love with this manicure that I am not sure when I will take it off!  I can't stop looking at them.  They look like acrylics!  I love it when people get that look of shock and awe when they ask you who does your nails, only to be followed by "those are your real nails?!".
