New-Gen French Manis

Favourites 18

Thought French manis were a bit passe? Get ready to revisit this old-school trend for SS16, after the likes of Tibi and Jonathan Simkhai sent exaggerated tips down the runways.  Forgo white tips in favour of colour (from bold black to tomato red) and you'll nail this stylish but fun look in a flash. 

Here, Vanessa Williams,  Head Educator and Nail Technician at NailsInc, explains how to get the look at home...
 
1. Start by applying a base coat. 

2. Once dry, paint the entire nail with your preferred colour. Allow to dry fully. 

2. Apply French manicure stickers to the tips of your nails. 

2. Apply your chosen colour you want the tips of your nails to be (it doesn’t matter if you paint over the stickers) and wait three to six minutes for it to dry. 

3. Carefully remove the French Manicure stickers from each nail.

4. Finish with a top coat.
