Popularity of French Manicure
The combination of brilliant white tips and light pink base makes French manicure a craze among women. Generally women visit expensive salons to get their nails done but you can achieve the same look on your own if you follow these tips.
Shape the Nails
If you are wearing any nail polish then remove it with a vitamin-E enriched nail polish remover. Next you have to immerse your hands in warm water only for 2 or 3 minutes. This will make your nails soft. Now with the help of a cuticle pusher you need to push the cuticles in a gentle manner. Next you have to shape your nails with a nail file. If your nails are too long then you can clip them short with a nail clipper.
Apply White Nail Polish
Now apply a white nail polish on the tips of your nails. If you are applying a second layer of polish then make sure that the first layer dries well. Keep your hand stable while drawing the tips. The edge should be smooth. Wait for them to dry.
Apply Pink Polish
Apply a nude shade or a transparent pink shade of nail polish on your nails, covering them completely. You can also apply a second coat of the polish if you think that the color is too light. Finally you have to apply a transparent topcoat so that the French manicure lasts long.
If you want your feet to look as great as your hands then you can follow the same procedure for your toe nails.
