For this Challenge I wanted to try to stick to the modern french styles, Which has so much variety in 2014. I really like the french manicure style that has an opaque cuticle area and a bold free edge, (example a solid gray cuticle area with turquoise free edge). So I decided to base my french look off this style. After researching a little about LA, the fact that it is the CITY of ANGELS stuck out to me the most. so here is how you can get a C.A. (city of angels) French Manicure.
