I would love to try number 10, Good vibes Only look as I love the swirl of soft colors and how it all just comes together. They are such fun summer colors but mostly reminds me of soft beautiful clouds.
my sign is Gemini
😩 #9 wow! I would love to try those on my birthday this year (2 months away) 🥳 I love the simplicity of the design. It’s an ombré green design, but it’s so flattering for many 😍
Love #6 – the double french is a cool way to update the regular french manicure, but my favorite is #12 – a barely there french manicure using green is SO unexpected!! The color gives the manicure some edge but still looks chic.
