How to French Manicure and Pedicure


Wanna have that neat, classic look of french manicure but hard to pay the salon? Try to do it yourself french manicure and pedicure with this easy how-to. You will be amazed by the result. Moreover, you can re-create your own french design that's unique and attractive.

What You Need:

Step 1

Start with a clear base coat. Apply the natural pink nail polish to even out the color of the nail and to give it a soft pink shade.

Step 2

For French tip, paint one steady stroke across the top of the nail with a loaded brush. Second way is to draw a strip by filling in little segments.

Step 3

Let French tip dry well. Apply a second layer of 

the natural pink polish over the entire nail to give it a morenatural look.

Step 4

This step is our favorite though it's optional. With a bright red polish, paint small dots with a dotting tool, along the inside edge of a French stripe. A new touch for traditional design!

Some Tips:

  1. As an alternative the red dots can be painted only on the big toes.You can also substitute red with any color of your choice.
  2. Make sure that a layer is dry before putting another la

    yer on top of it. This will make the application lasts long and looks neat.

  3. Finish your manicure or pedicure with top coat for extra shine and protection.
  4. Create your own french line guide from masking tape or 
    label. It's special for your nails only and cheap.
  5. For perfection, use a Q-Tip soaked in polish remover to remove the polish around the cuticle/nail and also to rub away the white polish until you find the nice french line you want.
  6. Enhance your design by changing the natural pink with other colors or applying nail decals or rhinestones.

Tips From You:

My tip for teenagers and women is when you're performing a french manicure it might get too fat which you probably don't want, so you should put some tape. GOOD LUCK EVER
