Nails of the day: Shellac French At The Brooklands Hotel

A manicure does make me feel so well groomed even if the rest of my style is more disheveled, and nothing quite beats the French mani for a look effortless polished elegance.

This fitted in perfectly with the venue of my manicure, The Brooklands Hotel, which teams super stylish accommodation with a gorgeous boutique spa (See my previous review here). They have recently started offering my favorite CND shellac manicure (see my general review of shellac here for more info) and as the colors that were jumping out to me had donned my talons previously, I decided to opt for a French.

My therapist was such a perfectionist in applying the two coats of 'Studio White' to the tips of my nails, which is exactly what is required for a natural look, then popped a coat of 'Clearly Pink' which is basically a clear polish with a subtle pink tone, which also helps the manicure look like your natural nails, on a really good day! The sheerness of the pink also means that when the mani starts to grow out, it is far less obvious than a regular shellac, so helpfully it will keep looking fabulous for over the normal two weeks.




I'm so pleased with this French manicure, the white tips are really slim, which avoids them looking too false. The Brooklands Hotel are currently running a promotion on their Shellac Manicures, at £20, rather than the normal £35.

PS - here is my step-by-step guide to shellac removal, so you don't need to pay the extra to have it removed professionally x
