DIY Red French Tips Nails Tutorial
You’ll need just a few items to create this Red French Tip nail design:
A bold red nail polish
A clear top coat or very sheer pink nude
If you prefer a sheer nude base rather than clear, choose a pink toned nude to coordinate with the red tones of the tips. Once you’ve chosen your polishes, clean and prep your nails by shaping them into almond or coffin tips.
To get a smooth and perfect French tip, first completely remove any residual polish and wash your nails well. If you have residual polish in your cuticles or nail edges use a cotton swab dipped in polish remover to get into the smaller areas.
Then, start with your red polish, in one single motion swoop the polish from the natural growth point on your nail bed and connect it to the coordinating point on the other side of the nail.
Once the red polish is fully dry, coat the entire nail in the clear or sheer polish. Using a sheer pink (rather than clear) will provide coverage for any flaws on the nail base. One or two coats, depending on your personal preference. Let it dry, and you’re done!
