REVIEW:VOV FRENCH MANICURE SET.
What is this?
A French manicure set by VOV [A Korean brand].
Price:Rs.165 but i got it for Rs.150 [Indian rupees]
How is it?
You will know that soon….:P
Where can I get this?
Any sane makeup store . Ok on a serious note, I guess you will be able to find it in smaller makeup stores as this product isn’t that widely available everywhere.
About French manicure:
I love French manicure.According to me none of the other normal nail paints can give you that beautifully feminine and classy look.
French manicure gives you a natural look, although you do tend to coat the nail tip with a white nail paint.
I have seen many girls who loves to get a MANICURE done from the salon,But i feel it’s just a waste of money!Oh c’mon 😉
MY FIRST ENCOUNTER:
I have always been using a White nail paint, A Base coat and a baby pink nail paint for doing my French manicure.I never knew there existed a pack which had all three –that is a French manicure set until i found this beauty .
The VOV FRENCH MANICURE SET!
When i first found it in the store, i grabbed it desperately and that shopkeeper was like “Rs 165”
And i was like “WHAT??”
“what uncle , 150 na uncle…please ???” 😛
So i got it for Rs 150, depends on your convincing skills 😛
This product comes in 2 different packaging-one comes in a PLASTIC BOX and the other one is what i am reviewing about.
The plastic box one comes with a nail buffer and the bottles are super-small [SAMPLE SIZE]
So I didn’t want to buy it this time.
Hence, I ended up buying the bigger one.The brush is normal, nothing special and it’s easy to apply [Like any other nail paint.]
Just make sure you do not keep the paints OPEN for long
It consists of a BASE COAT-
You also get these strips that help you to paint the tips .
What I feel about this product?
- It’s very easy to use this product.You will have a complete set with you and can carry it anywhere you want .
- It does dry out fast , so don’t keep it open for long.
- But it works really well.I don’t use the strips though as it’s super-easy for me to use the normal brush .The nail paint stays on my nails for about 3 days and then it starts chipping off [This again depends on what you do the whole day :P]
- This product will last for about 3 months or so, depends on your usage .
- 1.Love the packaging,easy to carry.
- 2.The price is pretty Normal
- 3.It stays for 3 days , not bad 😛
- The only thing is that it dries out soon .
Will i buy it again?
- YES 😀 ! This is my Third pack .
Rating: :-* :-*:-* + 0.5
**There are many FAKE VOVS in the market, so be careful and make sure you see where it has been produced-
It should be made in TAIWAN OR KOREA . 😛 And not in INDIA! The packaging itself will speak for itself haha 😛
SOME French Manicure TIPS:
- Paint the white tip area normally, it’s ok if it gets messy.
- Want a second coat?Do that too.
- After that , take a brush!
- I will be using the brush in the above picture – a normal paint brush
- And dip it in acetone/or a nail polish remover.I got this super huge
- Acetone bottle for like 60 bucks . You can get it in any medical store.
And remove all the unevenness under the white tip. Use it like a normal paint brush [Don’t forget to dip it in
- ACETONE!!I End up dipping it in the nail paint for some reason :P]
- And remove all the weird messy white tip from the bottom, so that you get an even white line.
- You can manipulate the shape however you want, so this makes it easier, doesn’t it?
- Now you are all set.
Paint the left over place with the baby pink base coat
And then top it with a TOP COAT!
If you don’t find this product anywhere ,You can use Normal nail paints like these-
- You can get a normal white paint for the white tip-
- A clear nail paint for the top coat –
- And a baby pink or nude nail paint for the Base coat –
Hope this helped .
And if you guys have any queries let me know 😉
Take care and keep smiling 😀
