When it comes to polish jobs, nothing is more versatile than applying French manicure. The popular white-tip look goes well with any outfit, be it casual or classy, and you can match it with any color you want to dress yourself in for the day. Applying French manicure on your own is not that complicated. Just have all the essential supplies on hand and you can do it anytime. You may get a convenient kit containing white polish, neutral polish, base or top coat and tip guide strips.
Considering that you have already clipped, filed and shaped your nails with the cuticles done, first thing to apply is the base coat then allow it to dry.
Fix a guide strip just below the tip of every nail and make sure to follow the natural curve.
Be consistent in the length of the tips and take note that longer nails require longer white tips. This will serve as your guide in painting a precise white tip effortlessly.
Apply white polish and be careful not to paint below the guide. Let dry then remove the guides.
Apply two coats of the neutral polish and finish with base coat.
