French Tip Tutorial

Last week I decided to do a normal boring French Manicure. Seen as I generally have unusual colours and designs on my nails it was nice to do something simple for a change.
 
I've looked at several tutorials on how to get the perfect neat french tips and found this method works best for me.
 
Step 1- Apply a layer of white polish to the top of your nails, this does not have to be perfect (I used OPI- Alpine Snow)

 
Step 2- Dip a small brush into some nail polish remover or acetone and begin to remove excess white polish from nail, creating a neat line.



 
Step 3- Once nail polish is dry, Apply two layers of top coat (I used Essence Gel Look Top Coat)
 
Optionally you can apply a light pink colour over the white before layering on your Top Coat, in order to tone down the bright White and make it a more natural colour.
 
Here's the results!
