How to do French manicure at home

What all you need for a French manicure

Nail polish remover
Cotton pads or balls
Nail file and buffer
Cuticle pusher and nippers
Base coat
Pale pink or nude polish
White polish
Top coat
Nail polish remover pen or a thin brush for clean-up
Prep Your Nails
Start by removing any old nail polish with a nail polish remover. Next, file your nails into your desired shape—whether it’s square, round, or almond. Smooth out any rough edges with a nail buffer to create a clean, even surface. Soak your hands in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to soften your cuticles. Gently push them back with a cuticle pusher, and trim any excess with cuticle nippers if needed.
Apply the Base Coat
A good base coat is essential for a long-lasting manicure. It protects your nails from staining and provides a smooth surface for the polish. Apply a thin layer of base coat and allow it to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Paint the Base Color
Choose a pale pink or nude polish for the base colour of your French manicure. Apply two thin coats, allowing each layer to dry thoroughly before applying the next. Thin coats are less likely to smudge and will dry faster than thick ones.
Create the White Tips
The classic French manicure features crisp white tips. There are a few ways you can get this look at home. If you have a steady hand, you can paint the tips freehand. Use the white polish brush to carefully paint a thin white line along the edge of each nail. If you prefer a more controlled approach, use nail guides or tape. Apply the guides or tape just below the tip of your nail and leave the end exposed. Paint the exposed tip white, then carefully remove the guides or tape before the polish dries. A white nail art pen can also be used for precision. Simply draw the white line along the tips of your nails.
Don’t worry if your lines aren’t perfect. Dip a thin brush or a nail polish remover pen in nail polish remover and clean up any smudges or uneven edges.
Apply the Top Coat
Once your white tips are dry, finish your manicure with a top coat. This seals in the color, adds shine, and helps prevent chipping. Apply a generous layer and make sure to cover the entire nail, including the edges.
Finish your at-home manicure by moisturising your hands and cuticles. Use a nourishing hand cream or cuticle oil to keep your skin hydrated and your nails healthy. And there you have your pretty pretty French manicured hands.
