You may have recently come to found out that the best French Polish is one of the best and most economical manicures, find us by using the keyword ‘french polish las vegas’. But sometimes you’re unable to go to a salon to get a manicure, and have to take matters into your own hands, here is how you can give yourself a French Polish Manicure.

What you need:

Before we get started you need the essentials, the equipment which we will use over here:

  • non-acetone nail polish remover and cotton balls

  • nail file

  • buffing block

  • sugar scrub to exfoliate

  • orangewood stick

  • cuticle oil

  • moisturizer

  • nail polish (base coat, color, and top coat)

Clean ‘em up:

Start by cleaning your nails using the non-acetone nail polish remover of any residue of nail polish or any other substance that can interfere with the procedure. Your nails need to be absolutely clean before we can proceed, so pay attention at this step.

Soak ‘em and Scrub ‘em:

Soak your hands for two to three minutes. Follow up with exfoliation, use a body scrub if available. In case you don’t have it, for an easy at-home fix, just mix one tablespoon of sugar with one tablespoon of baby oil gel and gently scrub away the dead, dry cells. Also makes the nails smooth and softer, and easier to work with.

Caring for your Cuticles:

Soften your cuticles by rubbing a bit of oil on them. Once you have done this properly, your cuticles should be nice and soft, so go ahead and push them back with an orange-wood stick to get a really nice shape. You can also use this tool to clean and dirt from under the nail as well. Grab a vitamin-rich moisturizer, and slather it on. Before moving on to step four, swipe the nail beds with non-acetone polish remover to remove any oil and moisturizer. The key to long lasting polish is super clean nails!

Crank up that Base….Coat:

Apply a base coat so a smooth even surface is produced, one thin coat will do the trick just fine. This is to give an even surface underneath, and to make sure the color comes out good.


The main difference between any manicure and the French Polish is the white line at the tips, you can do this before or after, the choice is up to you. But all you need to do is apply pink, beige or nude polish to each nail. The white tip is created using an opaque white varnish, or nail crayon. Whatever the order, you will need to do two another coat on top of it.


Simple as that, relax. You need time to let the coats of polish dry so just kick back and relax.

This is a harder procedure to pull off yourself, the true test of skill is in the white tip. It has to be perfect or otherwise the whole aesthetic will be ruined.
