Step by step tutorial: French tips & leopard print


Apply clear base coat. Applying base coat you can prevent and protect your nails from yellowing or any other damage caused by colored nail polish. Base coat also provides a smooth surface for color. I always use base coat. Sometimes special base coats with proteins, vitamins or calcium. Let it dry for about 1 minute.
Paint your tips with french tip whitener or another white polish for french manicure. French tip whitener has a thinner brush. You can use nail tip stripes. I always paint my tips freehand. Follow the curve of your natural nail tip. Then paint the exposed nail with white. Let your nails dry for about 5 minutes.
Paint the entire length of your nails with a light pink or light white nail polish for french manicure. Two coats of this polish may be necessary. Apply them in several thin coats instead of thick ones. Then let your nail dry for about 5 minutes.
Paint leopard print with black polish. You can use art deco nail polish with thin brush. It can be easier to do this print with that. However, you can also use normal black polish, I used it too. Remember, this print hasn't to be perfect. Let it dry for about 3 minutes.
Paint leopard print with minty nail polish. You can also use any other color you want. Let it dry for about 10 minutes.
Paint the entire nails with top coat. Applying top coat you can protect your manicure from any damage and it will last longer too. Top coat also gives shiny gloss to your manicure. To extend the life of your french manicure and to keep your nails nice and looking well-groomed, you should apply an extra layer of top coat on your nails every day. I always use top coat! Let the whole manicure dry for about 10 minutes. However, the longer the better. Be careful the next hour.
Final result with clear cuticles.
