Whether you are giving yourself a french manicure by hand or with a kit, you still have to prepare your nails beforehand:

1. CLEAN YOUR NAILS: Dab a cotton pad in nail polish remover and wipe it across your nails until all the old polish is gone. Then wash your hands and dry them with a lint free towel.

2. FILE YOUR NAILS: Use an emery board to file your nails. Work in one direction, from the edges to the middle, never back and forth.

3. SOAK YOUR NAILS: Wipe off any nail dust left on your nails from filing and soak them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. Then, take them out and gently pat-dry with a towel.

4. PUSH BACK THE CUTICLES: Take an orange stick and gently push the cuticles back to expose more of the round pinkish "moon" shape at the base of your nails..

5. BUFF YOUR NAILS: Buffing takes care of ridges and removes any oil. Plus, by gently roughing up the surface of the nail, the polish will adhere better to the nails.

French manicure is a manicure that is graceful. One of the best things about the French manicure is the one that has fewer flaws and fewer chips than the nail color. This will have to apply the white nail polish to the tip of the nail and other nails are painted with pure nail polish, nail pale beige or light pink polish.

A regular manicure will keep nails tidy and hands clean. Each hand is treated separately like specific nail type. Cuticles are cared with creams and oils. To do, give yourself a French manicure or pedicure. Pick up one of your nail gems with a pair of tweezers and place it on top of your nail.
