Perfect that Elegant French Tip Manicure and PedicureThere is nothing quite like a classic manicure and pedicure. An enduring manicure favourite is the French manicure – a stunning manicure with white nail tips which are perfectly complemented by a feminine subdued pink hue. Many women may think that to achieve this elegant manicure and pedicure favourite, you would have to book in for a pricey mani-pedi at the local salon but thanks to nail products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International, you can effortlessly achieve this gorgeous nail look yourself!

With the variety of products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International, you will easily find all of the tools and nail polishes that you will need to create that elegant French manicure. Classic French tips are a popular manicure choice but the look can also be continued to your toes too for a matching look – ideal for bridal nails or for holiday nails! The first thing you will need to do with your nails and toenails is ensure that they are perfectly shaped. Using an emery board will allow you to shape your nails into a smooth finish and you can even shape your nails into stylish square or curved tips depending on your preference.

Once nails are shaped and smooth, it is time to apply some polish! Manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International include a number of at-home French manicure kits so you will have everything you need to complete that chic French tips look. Begin with a good base coat such as Jessica Reward – a vitamin enriched base coat that works to maintain the strength and flexibility of your nails. Next you will need to paint the tips of the nails and toenails white to get the desired French tips finish. An ideal nail colour to use is Jessica Wedding Gown nail polish – simply paint the polish along the tips of the nails taking as much time as you like – this part can get a bit tricky if you are not used to it! Once you have applied two coats and allowed time to dry, use a nail colour such as Jessica Fairy Dust and paint one coat to give the nails that feminine pink colour.

To ensure a long-lasting and chip resistant finish, you should finish the manicure with a completing coat of a high shine top coat to seal in the colour. After painting nails, you can extend this gorgeous nail look to your toes too!

Showcase the timeless appeal of the classic French manicure by painting your nails with nail polish products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International. Once you have perfected the art of the French mani-pedi, why not get creative and add contrasting coloured nails in bolder colours or you could even add a few nail gems to create a shimmering yet chic nail look.
