7 Step Tutorial To Do French Manicure & Reverse French Manicure At Home

You needn’t spend a ton of cash and go to the salon to get a French manicure; you can do it at home, all by yourself.

You needn’t envy women who can afford to spend money on expensive salons to get a stylish manicure. Here we show you exactly how to do a French manicure at home.

7 Step French Manicure Tutorial

  1. Begin by giving your nails an even trim; ideally longer is better.
  2. Shape your nails, either round or square.
  3. Soak your hands in a bowl of lukewarm water before pushing your cuticles back using a cuticle pusher.
  4. Apply cuticle oil on your nails.
  5. It’s base coat time! Simply paint a thin layer of pink polish on your nails and let them dry for about two minutes. Apply a second coat and let it dry.
  6. Using white polish and a nail guide, gently brush color only on the nail tips of your nails and let it dry for a couple of minutes. Apply a second coat and let it dry.
  7. Take off the nail guide and put on a final coating of polish.

And for those interested, here’s how to do a reverse French manicure.

4 Tips For Making Your Homemade Manicure Last

  1. Make sure you paint on a transparent thin coat on your manicured nails every day. This holds the coat firmly in place.
  2. Should your nail polish chip, simply fill in the gaps with a white shade of nail polish and apply a transparent coat over the chipped areas.
  3. Always make sure you thoroughly moisturize the skin around your nails and not the nails themselves. Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Ageing Day Cream is a good bet, as it will moisturize your hands and also prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. To ensure your French manicure lasts always wear gloves when you’re doing the dishes or washing clothes.
