Maybelline Noite de Gal with stencilled French tip accents in Ciaté Sugar Plum
I had no idea what Noite de Gal meant. I presumed it was French, but I got nowhere with that. Google Translate helpfully told me it’s Galician for “night gal”. I’ll go with that (unless anyone can tell me better).
Maybelline Noite de Gal is one of the Color Show polishes. It’s a deep purple, and while the colour is nothing unique, I was very impressed with the quality. It lasted really well and did not chip at all.
After a day or so, I added some French tip accents, in Ciaté Sugar Plum, a pale lilac.
I used some SmART nails stencils. It took me a couple of nails to get the hang of them properly, and even then I was a bit inconsistent with the amount of polish I used. They were pretty straightforward to use and come in lots of different styles. I bought three types, so have some more manicures up my sleeve. Also, if you’re careful with them, they can be reused.
The SMaRT Nails packaging showed this design used diagonally across the nail, but I thought a French tip was more elegant.
