This manicure is sure to get you tons of compliments! This reverse French Mani is familiar enough to recognize yet fresh enough to turn some heads. And while it looks difficult to attain, it’s actually quite simple!
Grab these things:
-a white and a gold nail polish (or whatever two colors you’d like to do, a base and an accent color)
-french guide tips or paper reinforcement stickers, or tape
File and shape nails into desired shape.
Apply base coat and allow to dry. Paint two coats of your base color coat and allow to dry completely. It’s really important to make sure your nails are 100% dry before moving on to the next step. Consider painting nails one day and adding the accent the next. You don’t want to stickers to pull up your nail varnish.
Apply french tip guides upside down halfway down your nails. Paint the exposed base with two coats of your accent color. If using reinforcement stickers I find that lining the top with the tip of your nail is the best. If using tape consider a chevron shaped base as the straight lines make a pointy tip easier to attain.
Let dry and remove the stickers. Again, really important to make sure your nails are really dry. Watch a movie or catch up on your shows. Apply top coat and let dry completely.
Rock your new mani like it ain’t no thing!
