No lie, this french is SMOKIN'! It's the houndstooth design of plate m 63 used only on the tip. The white is Nailene White French Tip Pen (which was given to me for review by the company). This pen is better than no pen at all, however (maybe it was just me) but it was roughed up by my flaking nails, this made it skip around a bit. All in all though, it makes french manis super easy!
