4 minutes to prepare the nails
Using a nail file, give a nice shape to the nails. With a tissue soaked in alcohol, clean the surface to facilitate the adhesion of the varnish. Then apply a protective base coat.
8 minutes to draw the borders
Wring well the brush of the white varnish. Place it on the left side of the nail and draw a line along the border, in one stroke, to the right side. Apply a second coat, this time starting from the opposite side.
1 minute for touch-ups
With a small brush soaked in solvent, clean the edges of the white varnish to make them neat. Also remove any overflows on the skin.
2 minutes to unify
Then apply a transparent pinkish-beige varnish all over the nail to homogenize the whole and give the whiteness of the border a patina. Finish with a layer of top coat to protect the result.
The right gesture
Repair a small chip on the edge of the nail, by tapping, stencil style with the white brush, fully wrung out. Then apply a layer of top coat all over the nail. And There you go ! A successful French!
