F is for French Tips: Revlon Nail Art French Mix Mani Duos

To me, French Manicure = Porn Star Nails. But Revlon's Nail Art French Mix duos are down with the trend toward more sophisticated, colourful French Tip manicures.

To put it mildly, I'm not a fan of traditional white-and-nude French manicures or French tips. I love what's been happening in editorial images like the one above (found online, not Revlon), the more sophisticated version we've been seeing over the last few months.

But nails like these -- and believe me, it hurt Staff and me to put this photo on Beautygeeks -- "Porn star," I think. "Star" might be overstating it, but whatever. I'm so scarred by manicures like this that I reacted with a measure of horror when Revlon nail expert Leeanne Colley of Tips Nail Bar mentioned she was working on some French Tip mani looks.

Then I saw these, Revlon Nail Art French Mix polish duos, and understood.

Eight shades of Revlon Nail Art French Mix polish duos ($8.95 each) will launch this June.

Each duo features two complementary polish colours.

Of course you can mix and match at will if you have more than one duo. (Staff felt it was important to mention that.)

Some shades have a bit of shimmer.

Some shades are creamy.

Noticed these are kind of Easter colours... have a great Easter weekend!

Revlon Nail Art duos will be available in drugstores and mass retailers. Revlon preview photos via Fujifilm FinePix F300 EXR digi-cam. I heart it.
