First trim your nails to the desired length (Short). Make sure all of them are same. And remember: When it comes to the French Manicure, the longer they are the better.
Figure out the type of shape how you’d like (rounded or square). Then grab a nail and start design.
If you really want to recreate the spa experience in home, dip your hands in a bowl of warm water and let them soak for two minutes. Then take a cuticle pusher and gently push your cuticles back. Use the opposite end of the cuticle pusher to remove any dirt and grime from underneath your nails.
Now, before you apply your first coat of polish, buff the top of your nails to prepare them for it. If you’re doing Red Carpet Manicure gel nails, at this point you’ll want to cleanse your nails with the Purify Pre & Post Application Cleanser. Next, take the Prep Max Adhesion Sanitizer, and lightly paint a thin layer onto each nail. For those of you doing just a regular polish, simply massage cuticle oil onto your nails at this time.
You’re ready for your base coat now. Paint on a thin layer of sheer pink polish, and let your nails dry for a couple of minutes. For gels nails, cure them under the LED light for 50 seconds only, no longer. Repeat this step again with a second coat of polish, and allow your nails to dry before moving on.
After they’re all dry, place the nail guides on them to snag the perfect white tip pain free. Don’t have any? That’s alright. The next step will just require some concentration on your part.
With your white polish, lightly brush color onto the tip of your nails. Let the polish dry for a few minutes. For gel nails, let it cure for 50 seconds. Repeat this step with a second coat, and wait for it to dry or cure.
Remove your nail guide, and apply a top coat of polish. Allow this coat to dry for several minutes (or cure it under the light for 50 seconds). Voila, you’ve just completed your very own French design.
