Hello everyone! Welcome to my nail art world!
We all know that the french manicure has always been one of the most beautiful designs for every woman! It’s classy, sofisticated, elegant and suitable for everyone, whether you are a 15 years old girl or mature woman – it doesn’t matter! That’s why ladies all over the globe liked to get their nails done ever since the late ’70. But, is this manicure really french? As far as we know, this nail art trend indeed started in Paris, France, back in 1930. Ever since, french manicure became a synonym for elegance, fashion and a very nice, clean looking style. If you’d like to know more about the story behind this huge nail art trend, take yourself back in the past by clicking here. On the other side, if you’d like to know how I do my french manicure, stay here and enjoy!
Okay, so we all know how french manicure looks like. After applying nice base coat we have to paint our nails nude or light pink with those gorgeous pure, white tips. However, that’s not always as easy as it seems. White nail polish has to be perfect, opaque and the brush should allow you to make that perfect, thin arch. It’s quiet tricky to pull this off, especially on your right hand. This is exactly the reason why today we can buy french tip stencils, stickers and all those crazy nail art supplies that make our job easier. But, if you are one of those persons who doesn’t like using stencils and stickers that much, as me, you probably want to learn the easiest way to make yourself a french manicure in comfort of your own home!
If your nail colour is looking natural (without yellow stains), this is the best way for you! Without applying base coat paint your nail tips white (this doesn’t have to be perfect at all!). Use your thick nail art brush (or even some old, clean nail polish brush), dip it into nail remover or acetone and slowly clean up your lines, leaving a nice, curve white line. The trick is to be fast and don’t let that nail polish to dry! After you’re done, apply a protecting layer of base or top coat over your design.
The second best way to recreate french manicure in my opinion is to give it a lil bit of dimension and instead of curve tip, make a white V shape. This way is perfect for all beginners and it takes less than 5 minutes to be done! After applying a base coat, paint your nails nude or light pinkish colour (it’s perfect way to cover your yellow nails!). With white nail polish draw 2 crossed thick lines in a V shape. Seal your design with a generous amount of fast drying top coat and that’s it! Your V shaped french manicure is done!
I really hope that you find this post useful and that you will start making your own french manicure at home! Thank you very much for reading and I’ll see you next time!
