Short Red French Tips: How To Do Them Home
If you prefer to do your own nails but aren’t used to doing French tips, there are a few simple tricks.
- The simplest way is to use tape as a border for your polish.
- You can buy special tape at the drug store, or in a pinch, scotch tape works as well. Just line the tape under your free edge (you may need to trim if you’re using scotch tape) and apply your polish.
- The key with this method is to apply the color first, followed by the base coat and then the top coat.
- This way you can use a cotton swab to clean up the edges, and the combination of the base and top coats together will help to really lock in the color.
