There is just something so feminine and sexy about a French manicure, right? If you have an office job and you want sturdy, healthy, and professional nails, this is the right choice for you! Women who are also at college, brides-to-be, as well as teens, will love this manicure, and here is how to achieve it all on your own!

How To Do Your Own French Manicure In 5 Steps

1. Trim Them

Trim Your nails

Always notice little details, such as making sure that all of your nails are cut the same. The longer they are the better since long nail + French manicure go hand in hand.

2. Shape Them

Shape Your nails

Shape your nails with a nail file by rounding up the edges. You can go for a rounded, oval, or square shape – based on your preference. After you achieve your wanted shape take a cuticle pusher and push back your cuticles.

3. Use a Base Coat

Use Base Coat for your nails

Use a clear base coat to get your nails prepped. Add either white or sheer pink and always follow up with 2 coats. Let your nails dry on their own for 10 minutes before you proceed with your next step. You can also use a UV LED lamp and dry them off in 45 seconds.

4. Use Nail Guides

Use Nail Guides

Nail guides are super inexpensive and you can find them in any smaller or bigger drugstores. Apply them at the tip of your fingernails as a guideline. Use any white nail polish and add two light coats above the tips.

5. Seal The Manicure

Seal The Manicure

Once your manicure dries down you can set it with a topcoat. Topcoats will add longevity to your manicure and will prevent them from cracking.

Go for a dark blue or even black colored tip instead of a white one! This will add dimension and will look a lot more interesting than the traditional solution, ideal for those who want to step out of their comfort zone.
