French Manicure At Home October 8, 2007

Posted by ashleysguide in Beauty.

You don’t always have to get a French manicure in a salon. You can do it yourself for a low cost. Here’s how.

1. You can do just the tips, or the whole nail if you want, but for the whole nail, you will need two different colors. For the tips, you really just need one. I will tell how to do the whole nail.

2. First,you will take a roll of medical tape and cut a piece wide enough for the width of your finger.

3. Stick a piece of the medical tape over the tip (the white part) of each finger.

4. Paint the bottom of your nail with one color.

5. Put a clear base coat over that.

6. Wait a few minutes until they are completely dry and then peel the tape off.

7. Now put the tape over the bottom of your nails, so only the white tips are showing.

8. Paint the tips with another color.

9. Put a clear base coat over them and wait for them to dry.

10. When your tips are dry, peel the medical tape off, and add one more base coat.

11. Repeat on your other hand.

12. You can also do this for your toes.

Easy isn’t it?! Enjoy your gorgeous nails!
