Meanwhile, the firm has also released four new nail colours in its Vernis 1 Seconde range (€9.99), designed to tone with existing colours and create colourful French manicures. The colours are: Champagne Shower (to tone with Fuschia Bucolique), Oh My Gold (to tone with Taupe Classy), I Like to Mauve It (to tone with Rouge Obscur) and It’s Raining Stars (to tone with God Save The Green). The firm also suggests different ways of applying a French manicure, including Classic French with contrast nail tips, Outlined French with contrast outlines all the way round the nail and Side French with contrast vertical strips. To make application easier, the firm has developed a very narrow brush, the Pinceau Pro Double Embout (€7.99) with one slant point and one pencil point.
