How to Apply French Manicure Nail Art Designs for summer
You will need some simple stuff for your French manicure if you decide to do it at home.
- cotton balls
- hand moisturizer
- nail file
- nail polish remover
- clear nail polish
- white polish
- any opaque nail polish from the colors mentioned above.
The first step is always to clean your nails before applying any nail polish on top, if you have a previous nail polish, make sure to use the nail polish remover to clean it off. After you’re done with this, start with a clear coat on your nails to protect it. You can then proceed to adding the colors you prefer as the base color for your French tip nail art designs. Make three even strokes from the center and down to the sides; one coat is more than enough. As the polish dries, the streaks will gradually disappear.
The hard part is applying the white streak on the tips of your nails. As a beginner your strokes might look rugged and not smooth at all. Some suggest that you can use tape as a guide in making defined and curvy strokes. Just make sure that your base coat is completely dry before attempting this to avoid destroying the color. Then top it off with a clear coat!
