An American manicure is a type of nail polish application that creates a natural-looking, classic look for the nails. It is characterized by a pale pink or beige base color on the nails, with a white tip. The white tip creates the illusion of a white, clean nail bed.
To achieve an American manicure, you will need:
- Base coat
- Pale pink or beige nail polish
- White nail polish
- Top coat
- Nail polish remover
- Cotton swabs
- A small brush (such as a toothbrush)
- Start by applying a base coat to your nails and allowing it to dry completely.
- Apply two coats of the pale pink or beige nail polish, making sure to allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next.
- Use the small brush and white nail polish to paint the tips of your nails white.
- Clean up any mistakes with a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover.
- Apply a top coat to seal in the color and protect your nails.
- Wait for the topcoat to dry completely before performing any activities.
It is important to note that the American Manicure is a process that requires precision and patience, and it may take a few tries to get it right. It is also important to use a good quality brush, this will make the application process easier.
