Step by step tutorial to nail double french manicured nails

Step 1: 

Start by cutting thin pieces of masking tape or even peel off nail tip guides which help you give arch shape at the tips of the nail as well as even.

Step 2:

Use the masking tape of nail tip guides and leave some of the nail tip exposed. Paint the exposed arch and press the tape firmly so that the polish doesn’t leak.

Step 3: 

Here we start painting the tip of your nails with a darker shade. Make sure to wipe excess polish off on the bottle before applying.

Step 4: 

We let the polish dry for a few minutes and remove the tape. Do not wait for the paint to fully dry, otherwise you risk peeling off the polish that you painted your nail with.

Step 5: 

Next, we paint the thinner layer of paint on top of our nails. First start off applying the at the very edge and then you can work your way in, in case you are feeling very shaky.

Step 6: 

Now, we go back to drying. Set the timer on your phone for about five minutes and apply a topcoat. Make sure to seal the edge of your nail so you can keep the design from chipping.
