It linked to this Pop Cosmo post about doing an effortless french manicure.
You begin by applying a clear base coat to your nails and letting it completely dry. Honestly, this was the worst part because we were ready to get on to the next step and the waiting was no fun!
Next, you apply those little reinforcement stickers that you use to fix a torn hole of a piece of notebook or 3-hole punched paper. Make sure you press the stickers down well so they don't lift up mid-manicure. The first time I did it, I put the stickers up too far and ended up with very little area to paint. The second time, I put them down further (well below the "white" part of my nail) and it worked so much better. This picture is from the second time.
Then you paint 2 thin coats of whatever color you choose. From our 3 attempts (my 2 & Damaris' 1), we discovered that a darker or bright color works best.
More waiting until the polish is completely dry. Then remove the stickers and apply a clear top coat. And abracadabra, you have an effortless french manicure.
Here's mine (from the 2nd time around):
And here's Damaris':
We had fun doing this and it was much cheaper than going to the nail salon for a french manicure. The reinforcement stickers were around $3.50 for 180 of them (so 18 french manicures!!!!!!). Until next time,
