French tips or manicures can be done professionally in all salons. Nail technicians are trained to get them done flawlessly. Many women prefer to get them done by professional nail technicians as getting a perfect finish can be quite tough when done at home. To get it done properly at home or professionally, you will need a complete nail set.
To do a French manicure, two colors are usually used-a translucent pink or a beige base color that matches the natural skin or bare nail color, drawing out the natural look as well as the white color for the tips as well. The pink or beige color is added and then the white tips are done. When going to salons for fake nails, it is advisable to make sure that the technicians practice hygienic methods as unclean practices can lead to infection.
Before beginning the actual French manicure procedure, remember to remove old nail polish and trim your nails to the length you desire. Once you are done cleaning and trimming your nails, apply a base coat and keep it thin and even. After this, put a tip guide to your nails and when you are done with that, apply white polish to the exposed tips and let them dry.
When the white tips have dried, remove the nail tip guides and then paint the entire length of your nails with a pink or beige polish. Two coats of this polish may be required. After this, you can apply a layer of top coat on your nails. After applying the top coat, let your nails dry and make sure they dry completely.
