French Manicure

The French manicure is characterized by the pale pink base and the bright white tips. I personally love this style it looks really feminine and classy. Most people find this really hard to do, but it is actually not that difficult, it is all about the technique. I have super shaky hands and even I can do it! Just have a little patience and follow the steps below to create this French manicure yourself!

Things you will need for this tutorial are two nail polishes, a sheer pink one and a white one. I bought mine for only 2,50 each at Hema. The pink polish has a regular brush while the brush of the white polish is much thinner, which is great because it is easier to work with.

You are only five steps away…
1. Choose which hand you want to start with and put it on the table.
2. Paint your nails with a thin layer of sheer pink nail polish and let it dry.
3. Apply a second layer of sheer pink polish and again let it dry.
4. Now it is time to create sleek white lines at the top of your nail. The trick is to place your brush at the edge of your nail and hold it still. Then you make a rotary motion with the other hand that is on the table.  So you slightly turn your hand backwards.
5. Apply a topcoat if you want to, in order to make it last longer.

    I've done French manicures Lisette but I've usually done the white tips with a clear base and I've always had to use a sticky strip to make the lines… yours turned out lovely ♡

    All about de techniek inderdaad! Het lukte me nooit, totdat ik het eindelijk doorkreeg en betere lakjes kocht. Deze van de Hema ken ik nog niet, maar ze lijken me best fijn. Hema heeft goede nagellakjes namelijk.

    Ah sinds French manicure staan mijn andere nagellakjes te verstoffen. Ik vind het gewoon zo mooi, ookal kost het een beetje moeite 😉

    This looks really pretty Lisette! I am going to try this tonight! The only thing is that my white polish doesn't have a thin brush, but I hope it works out fine!

      It is also possible with a thicker brush! I tried it before, it is just easier to work with a thin brush.
      Good luck 🙂

    If you always save must not muscle group for last, they won't ever be fully worked out because you will always be tired motion. By beginning with the exercises that work those muscles once within a while, you will work them more effectively, boosting their growth.

    I'm afraid tend to be not going to achieve your objective. Motivation and drive are finite resources and they are unwisely spent on pursuits provide little your market way of long term gratification. And have to find a technique obsess over your goal to make success predictably.
