How to create a French manicure with Q-tips cotton swabs

My name is Amber and my blog is all about my personal style, hair tutorials, and beauty tips!

Polish your look with a classic French manicure. This is my favorite method.

I'm getting ready to take a girls trip to Paris with my mom and sister and I thought I'd polish my nails for the occasion. What better than a pretty French manicure to don in the City of Love? Q-tips Precision Tips make French manicures super easy to create. Here's the step-by-step:

  1. Paint the tips of your nails in a C shape using a silver or gold nail polish.
  2. Dip a Q-tips cotton swab in nail polish remover and use the tip to make the line of the French manicure smooth and even. You can decide how thick or thin you want it.
  3. Once that has dried, finish with a clear coat.
  4. Use a cotton swab dipped in polish remover to clean up the beds of your nails.
