I wanted to do another pink but I'm going to hold off. Most of my polishes are pinks and I'm trying to expand a little so I'm forcing myself not to buy anymore pinks for a while.
So I decided to go with a super sheer color from Borghese called B130 Patena Pearl F. I initially bought this nude transparent to give myself a shimmery top coat for my french manicures. Unfortunately I chipped my pinky nail while ripping off my old stuff (ughhh terrible habit, I know) and my other nails aren't even so I didn't want to give myself a full french mani, so I just stuck with the Patena Pearl for today!

The pictures I posted are with four coats. I've never applied four coats in my life (not including top/base) but I wanted to make sure it was enough for you to see in the pictures. It's very, very transparent, as you can see, so even if I applied 10 coats you'd still see nail line. What I usually do is apply my french tips and then add two coats of Patena Pearl on top and it looks awesome.
Unfortunately I can't rock transparents as well as I could because my nail beds are super uneven and I have this weird downward curve on both of my middle fingers. These things, I think, are less noticeable with opaque shades! Despite the state of my oddly shaped nails, I hope I've convinced you to try this color instead of a normal nude with your french manicures! Let me know if you try it and how it goes!
