Quick frenchie.

Recommended Posts

Kali-Ann Gills

Hi everyone,  

So heavy weekend, your tired cranky and to top it all your nails are not at their best. Work bekons. Panic not ladies.

I will share how to do what is called an instant frenchie.

For this you will need -

White buffing block. 

Good quality whitening toothpaste.

Four way buffer.

Cocktail stick.

Quick dry top coat. The edge brand is particularly good for this.


This should take around 15 minutes with regular polish only. 


Remove any polish. Take your buffing block and gently buff the nails. Clean them off. 

Take your four way buffer and buff to a reasonable sheen. Now use a cocktail stick and apply a thick layer of the whitening toothpaste under the free edge of each nail. As this is toothpaste and not a nail product you can 

Have your breakfast and coffee as normal.

After ten minutes wash off the toothpaste dry your nails and apply the top coat. 

Viola instant frenchie now it will not be as white as white polish or gel however, as an emergency and at first glance it works well.

I have used this technique and nobody noticed. 


Hope you have found this useful.


Kali-Ann 💋 xx

      I was always very aware of those things. I remember when my ex was pregnant there was no "father groups" of any kind in my city. In my mind it's a "have you ever wonder" moment for me. It's not about clothes but nonetheless it was a similar questioning on my part. I went to every possible formation and meetings of any sorts for parenthood. I know how to breastfeed better then my ex lolllll But, I was always slightly miffed about the fact that mothers had a group, solidarity between them and I was not permitted (mainly by my ex to be franc) to attend. That was the kind of moment where event if I did not act on it in a visible manner my identity was very "vocal", lol  I was not accepting of the fact that I was not included.   I always felt like even in feminism there's often a subtext that when a girl who is tomboy it's ok but a boy who is "janegirl"? Is very not ok, even a crime if you believe how other react to that. To me it reflect how our culture view femininity even now.

      omg i would have done ANYTHING to have been able to go to the Fillmore East (or West) . could you describe how it felt to go there and what it was like inside?

      @Susan R It was one of not believing, discounting, and deferring. Yet she would indulge me by making me a nurses outfit, white dress, white hat for Halloween one year. I came out to my Mom essentially 3 times in life, once at 8, again at 22, and finally at 51, the last being the most meaningful.

      You and me both, Sara!   That was my impression from your previous post, Emily.  So many are clueless (even I was until recently ... and I'm Trans! hah!).    Hoping the best for both of you ... well, all of us❣️

      I am happy to see so many music topics here lately on our forums Music is a universal language, and brings people together.     Growing up we had an old, i mean really old upright piano in our home, that I used bang on, I began to become interested in how the notes worked together, and taught myself some basic songs. I started playing guitar at 10, using my Mom's nylon string folk guitar she used in her teaching. Turns out I'm a lefty, and turned her guitar around the way that was most comfortable for me. Needless to say none of the chord fingering charts she had worked for me, so I had to improvise my fingering. Later I would become interested in the Bass Guitar and bought my first brand new 1978 Fender P (still have it) and practiced in my basement before joining my first band. I've always had a day job, but was able to supplement my income playing in working bands here in the Seattle area since the mid 80's as a bass guitarist. Even had the opportunities to open for national touring acts. I transitioned while in this one working cover band, and playing gigs as my true self was simply wonderful. The experience that saw my realization of a dream to be "a girl in the band". Nothing felt better then hearing someone yell out at this one gig "That lady bass player rocks !"......   Cyndee

      Acknowledging how much the pandemic has changed my habits.  The stores here in NJ are open once again, and still, I haven't been shopping.  Before the lockdown one of my fondest activities to shop, yet now, it seems to have lost some that previous luster.  The upside is that my my Macy's charge card has a zero balance, something else that is quite unusual for me.   I'm thinking a little shopping trip for me is well overdue!

      Hi Raphael!  nice to meet you, and thank you for your introduction.   I had already replied to your post on Therapy before I saw this introduction post.  But, just wanted to let you know you found a great place to reach out for support and also share (as you now already know). So, just wanted to take an opportunity to say Welcome❣️

      i won't forget how the Beatles changed the whole music scene.  I loved them and as their music changed i grew to respect them more and more.  At bit later i listened to the Stones and other groups.  I vividly remember moments of a Janice Joplin concert at the Fillmore East.  A bit later i was at a free Grateful Dead concert in a park in Atlanta.  The band came out and played after a regular concert. The folks in the sound truck threw marshmellows to folks as they came in.  Eating several of those made the night and the music merge. Ahh the 60's   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi cybreraphael!  Sorry to hear about your experiences with therapists.  I do think not being judged (or appearing to be judged) would be an essential requirement for me to trust and communicate with my therapist. I am actually waiting (hopefully this week) for my very first (ever) therapy session, so I have not even met my therapist yet.  I was given an opportunity for my first choice of available therapists and I did chose the one (woman) who is part of the LGBTQ+ community and had the most experience in this area.  Another important criteria, as you have also requested.   I will try to follow up on this thread and let you know how it goes after my first few sessions.   I think you have some other good suggestions and experiences here from @tracy_j and @SaraAW --  I think eventually you will find the right match.  So, don't give up❣️

      Wow, so many choices, but if I had to put one band at the top of my list is has to be Pink Floyd.  Their progressive style has always moved me and has made progressive rock my favorite genre.     A shout out to you though cybreraphael for mentioning 10 Years;  I really like them a lot.  They are one of my favorite modern bands, and I think it is because of their progressive underpinnings.

      I like playing music, but I am not a musician.  I can learn the notes, the rhythms, the expression, whatever is written in the music or heard on a recording.  But I can't compose anything or improvise my way out of a wet paper bag.  I was playing in a band one time, a paying gig, and and one of my band mates yelled, "Take it away, <deadname>!"  I nearly died.  I didn't "take it away".  I just kept on playing the song the way it was written.  Afterwards, I told him, "Don't ever do that to me again!"   My mother tried to teach me piano when I was a kid.  That was a fail.  In high school, I played clarinet in the school concert band, and I kept it up in a military band when I was in the air force.  (Sneaky trick that: the base band counted as a "secondary duty", and got me out of other nasty secondary duties like being base garbage officer.)  taught myself a few guitar chords, and I learned to play the hammered dulcimer.  I recorded a CD of hammered dulcimer music, which sold about two copies.    Currently, I play tenor sax in a community concert band.  I took a break for my surgery, but they then cancelled the rest of the season due to covid-19.
