I've seen and tried many techniques for a classic french manicure but always go back to this one. It's easy, fast, and really difficult to mess up...even on your wrong hand!
Small, flat, oval shaped paintbrush or lip brush // Nail Colour (or colours) of your choice
Polish Remover // Top Coat
1. Paint just the tips of nails, following a vague crescent shape. This step doesn't have to be perfect.
2. Dip lip brush in polish remover, dab off any excess with paper towel.
3. Run brush along bottom edge of nail colour in a "windshield wiper" motion. Repeat until you reach desired shape.
4. Remove any out-of-place colour by using lip brush and polish remover.
5. Finish with a top coat.
