Hey girls! So as you know I am a fan of the DIY mani. 1. because I change my mind and polish often and 2. It is nice to my tan hobo wallet.
I have been doing self french mani’s for years, and I am going to tell you my secrets! Get excited. Ha. 😉
Here is what you need:
1. Nail file
2. cuticle clippers
3. 100% acetone (important*)
4. White polish (can be any shade of white you want, sometimes I do a creamier shade)
5. OPI clear top coat
6. thin paint brush
Once you have filed your nails to desired length/shape, and used the handy dandy cuticle clippers to make your nails all prettay, you will use the white polish and paint the area you want white.
Don’t worry about making it messy, we are going to clean it up. Next take the paint brush and dip it in the acetone. Drag across the top of the white to create a crisp clean line.
White polish should easily come right off (assuming you have acetone) making a perfect line. Repeat on other hand. Do a second coat of white, and clean up with brush and acetone again if necessary. Top with OPI top coat. Voila!
Perfect mani. OPI top coat is the bomb.com, makes all the difference- trust me.
I also do my toes. And yes I know I have oddly long toes. Eww.
