Yes, nail art is still a popular trend, but a back-to-basics look is just as stunning. If you too are addicted to sleek and chic French-manicured nails — that can end up costing you with monthly touch-ups at the salon — then you’re in for a treat.

Remove the Old Nail Polish
Clip Your Nails
② The trendy nail shape of the moment is a “squoval” meaning not square nor oval. Long, squared nails that look fake can be tacky and super square nails can look dated.
To get the perfect squoval, clip your nails straight across. Grab a file and file in one direction so the corners are slightly rounded.
If you get your nails professionally done, you’ll notice how much prep work goes in before the paint goes on.
With a little practice, you’ll be doing this easy at-home French mani in your sleep:
⑥ When doing the french tip just carefully slide the brush to remove the polish. This is best done, right after you applied the white nail polish to the tip since the polish is still wet.
If needed, just the brush again to the remover to grab a little bit more just in case the brush starts to dry out.
