Here is a basic infographic to show you how to apply french tip Color Street step by step.
The French Tip Manicure can essentially be broken down into 2 steps.
The first step in how to apply french tip Color Street is the opaque white (or colored) tip to the end of your nails. This is the hardest part of application. It helps to know how to handle the strips first, but if you’re new to the process they’re still easy to use. Using the “anchor” method of holding the strip may be really helpful in this situation! It will keep your hand more stable.
Then the second step to finish the French Tip Manicure would be to place a full clear or slightly colored strip (depending on the set ordered) over the entire nail. This seals down the tip making sure it does not lift up from the nail. If you’re not new to Color Street this is the same process as applying any other strip (solid, glitter, design). Again, using the “anchor” method shown in the photo above will keep unnecessary finger prints out of the clear strip as well as giving you added stability.
