They look amazing! How on earth did you get the white lines to be straight! That’s my biggest mistake when I try to do my own nails

Wow that looks great! You must have steady hands. I’ll be doing my own nails, but just a solid color so it’s not impressive lol

Wow, you are SO much better at it than I am. I accepted defeat years ago… I will NEVER be able to nicely paint my own French manicure. 

I sincerely envy your skill!!

Looks good.  Are the lines on the other hand as crisp?  Mine wouldn’t be lol

I started doing my own when I was a teenager and didn’t have time or money for manicures. My first few weren’t great, but Sally Hanson sold little tapes that helped with the lines back then. I only started going to a salon again a year ago, for shellac manicures.

Good for you for learning to do their own.

I just wanted to add that your nails look wonderful and I am amazed you got such nice lines without tape. I use masking tape. Much cheaper then the specific tape the drug store sell and works really well. I do my toes too because I can’t afford mani and pedi’s most of the time (I’m a student).

You did an excellent job!

I’ve done my own french manicure since I was a pre-teen (or I guess “American manicure” because I like to use a neutral base color instead of pink). I might do my own nails for the wedding, although I may go to a salon just to get shellac because it’s so durable.
