Achieving a perfect French manicure at home is easier than you might think. Follow these steps to create a classic and polished look:
Start by removing existing nail polish and filing your nails to your desired shape.
Soak your hands for a few minutes to soften the cuticles. Gently push back the cuticles using a cuticle pusher.
Use a nail file to shape them into a slightly rounded or square shape. Ensure all nails are of uniform length.
Apply a clear base coat to your nails to provide a smooth surface for the polish to adhere to.
Now comes the defining feature of the French manicure. Use white nail polish to create a clean and precise white tip on the edge of each nail.
Once the white tips are dry, apply a sheer pink over the nail, including the white tips. This will give your nails a natural and polished look
The top coat will add shine and prolong the life of your French manicure. Be sure to apply a thin and even layer.
Use a small brush dipped in nail polish remover to clean up any mistakes or excess polish around the nails.
Finish off by moisturizing your hands and cuticles for added hydration.
