it's easy when you're doing the hand you don't write with, since you have the polish in the hand you *do* write with.

ummm, i'd say just get some of the white polish on the brush (not too much though, but not too little either) and put it in the corner of the nail and just slowly follow your nail's path. you know...the part that turns white, i guess the stuff past the nail bed.

oh, and make sure the white dries before you put on the sheer. i ruined a really good french manicure this way.

hope this helped!

1. You can buy french manicure kits at the store.

2. You can go get it done for like $15.

Mine cost about 20 cuz I get gel on top so the paint doesnt chip for 3 weeks!

I always though they were blood red from your poor dancing partners and sharpend to a point.

I just use pale white nailpolish and brush along the tips. Takes patience.

superstition. when i was in highschool my girlfriend put it on me and didn't take it off. went to game and played extremely well. so i kept doing it (also kept doing the nailpolish thing.) weird, yes. but most baseball players are.

Sicy, your hands are nice.....your manicure looks great! I'm very jealous...maybe someday my nails will grow that long. They seem to stop at the end of the fingertip....
