You should be pleased with 'em Kells - you did really well. I decided to have a go after all the advice about marbling tools and nail art brushes - unfortunately only model available was poor hubby!!! I have to say that i found using a nail art brush really good for me!

Hi Bea, to be honest the toes didnt take long at all, i applied a base coat and then applied more than white, with a brush neated the smile lines up and then applied a top coat x x

Well done Kelly! They look very neat and dainty! Do you find that you have more time to work with the MTW than you would with enamel in getting the smile perfected?

Kells, are you using a small gel brush to clean up? Are you using polish remover to clean up?

Hi ya i actually use a very small brush that i bought from a local art shop and you get about 4 in a packet for something like £3 or less, and there are two very small ones which i find fantastic to neaten the line up and i use polish remover x

Sorry for being really thick here but can you use MTW instead of the white enamel if you was just doing a french manicure on fingers??:confused:

They are really pretty - I always think french on toes look very classy - well done.

I've noticed that alot of you use More than white to do french manicure. I take it, it can be used like a normal white varnish?? Yours, dippy blonde!

Yep just paint on as normal varnish but it is infact a liquid acrylic I find it great has more staying power than white enamels...........give it a go you know you want to lol.

Take care Dawnie xx
