      Hello My Friends,

      I thought you might want to have some instructions on how to do easy and beautiful french nails yourself.

      What you will need:

      1)White Polish Choice
      2)Top Color Choice (translucent pink, or blush color)
      3)A inexpenive small brush. Pointed preferably. (Sally’s)
      4)A inexpensive pump to hold acetone.  (Sally’s Beauty)

      To Do:

      Add white polish to the tips of your nails. Think 3-way when adding. The side, the middle, the side. Do not go too
      heavy, you will be adding a second,possibly third coat.
      After each coat take your brush that is dipped in acetone
      (easy does it) and perfect the polish beneath for a crisp line.   *Add additional coats of white as needed for coverage. *Better to do thin coats than 1 thick coat! *Dry aprox 10 minutes.

      Once the white is dried you can then add your color choice as listed above to cover the entire nail. Let the natural nail dry for at least two hours. *Keep hands out of water for as long as possible.

      To maintain your french nail I have a client who uses Nail Envy every couple of days and she swears that it makes her polish last longer.

      You may also use the brush and acetone method to clean up your skin after polishing bright colors. Acetone cleans up the skin much easier than acetone free polish remover. It takes away the hassle and evaporates quickly.  

      I hope you will get much enjoyment from adding a french manicure to your Spring and Sumnmer days!!!
