Now just apply a base coat. I use Sally Hanson's Double Duty Strengthening Bass and Top Coat, but you can use whichever one you prefer.  NOTE: LET DRY BEFORE NEXT STEP

Take the white nail polish and very carefully, following the line of your natural tip, paint your tip white.  let completely dry

Now take your SUPER SUPER light pink and paint your entire nail. This will create a sort of pinkish tint to your nail, which is why I say use a practically see through pink. Once again, let dry.

Finally apply a top coat!! You now have your French mani!!

Here's a pic of the nail polishes I used. The pink is from mary Kay and, because I don't know if u can find it anywhere else, I would recommend it. But if u have one u think would work, use it!! \u263a
