French nails are pretty simple, fun and definitely a great fashion statement! You can create your own style with the French manicure and apply it at home before or on the day of your wedding. For this type of styling, you only need 3 basic tools: nail clippers, white hand paint and some base conditioner. It is advisable to practice on a small area first, especially if you are not experienced with French nails.
Your nail will need to be clean and dry. Thoroughly brush your nails with a good quality nail grooming product, such as nail-caregent. Do not use nail polish as this will make them appear dull and sticky. If you wish to have white tips to your tips, then you will need to make sure that your nails are clean and dry before applying the white tip gel. There should be no oily residue left on the nails once the tip gel has been applied.
Once you have your nails ready, remove any old nail polish with a cotton swab. This is important as any old nail polish can potentially cause damage to the white tip you are about to apply. You will then need to soak the white area in rubbing alcohol to make sure that the nail bed is completely clean. Next, you will need to trim off the excess nail at the tip.
It is essential to make sure that the bottom half of the nail is clean and in good condition before you begin. Once you have completed this step, you can continue applying the white tip gel. It is important to coat both sides of the nail at once.
Tap the tip of the nail against the side of the container with the white gel to make sure that it is properly in place. Make sure to allow sufficient time for the glue to set. Once this has all been done, you are ready to add the nail color of your choice and some extra embellishments, such as jewels. French nails can be used for months after your wedding.
If you are planning on wearing your embellishments, make sure that they are in a good condition before you begin. This is especially important for jewels that will sit on top of the tips of the nails. Also, never wear false nails if you plan on doing your own design. Doing your own embellishments on your own can lead to a lot of disappointment.
