I use Strawberry Smoothie as a base for french too, but I do have other pinks too so I generally do:

base
strawb smoothie
cream puff
beau
top coat

I guess you can always use just base, strawb smoothie, cream puff, top coat tho. :)

If you have someone who has damaged nail plates which need a little camouflage then Stawberry Smoothie is a wonderful base for a French.
I do 2 coats of Strawberry Smoothie then 1 coat of Cream Puff it's a beautiful combination.

I use it as a camouflage pink too.

I give clients 3 choices -
Translucent (Negligee), Semi-Translucent (Moonlight & Roses) and Opaque (Strawberry Smoothie).

Sometimes they like the opacity of Strawberry Smoothie but want the shimmery look, so I do 1 Strawberry Smoothie, Cream Puff tip and then 1 Moonlight & Roses over that.
