DIY French Tip Manicure

DIY french tip nails (8)

Who’s feeling girly?

In my world of men, sometimes I just need to feel like a girl.

My guys think I am insane, but sometimes, I’ve just gotta primp.  I am a girl.  It’s okay!  :)

Let’s do our nails today, m’kay?

It will be like an online Girl’s Night Out!  Yay!

…except that it’s morning.  But, I digress…

I really didn’t know how easy this was.  My good friend does nails professionally, and she taught me this little trick.

All you’ll need is a few Q-Tips, some nail polish remover, some white nail polish, and some clear nail polish.

Start with clean, dry nails.  Eww.  They don’t look so pretty there.  No worries.  Gonna fix that!

Apply some white polish to the tip of your nail.  Who cares what it looks like?  Not me!  :)

When it’s dry, apply some clear polish.

Yay!  Pretty!

It’s nice to feel like a girl every now and then, isn’t it?

That’s just me?  Oh well.  I love being surrounded by all this testosterone, but every once in a while, I just need to be a girl!  :)

  1. Awesome job!

  2. Another cool tip is to use a rubber band when you paint the white on so you have a clean line. Thanks for sharing this - very nice!!

    1. What a great idea! I've never heard that trick. Does it leave a bumpy ridge like the french tip nail stickers do?

  3. Wow I'm so going to try that! But first, what's some good ways to grow my nails out fast?


Thanks so much for taking a minute to let us know what you think! We read and appreciate all of your comments!
