French manicure and pedicure tips are for those who would like to do their own nails, feet and hands in the comfort of their own home. It is nice to go to the nearest nail salon in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth or anywhere else in South Africa but many women like to their own nails alone or with a friend or family member at home. Apart from saving money by not getting a professional to do it for you, it can also be good fun, especially if you are doing it with a close family member or one of your closest friends.
It’s not hard getting your french manicure to look like it was done by a professional nail technician at an expensive salon either if you follow the tips and advice carefully. For those who are perhaps not too familiar with the different types of manicures out there, the French version is where the nails end up with a highly polished look and the tips are coated in a white paint. The bulk area of the fingernails are given the highly polished look by the application of pale pink or a light beige sheer polish and this type of manicure is suitable for nails of a short to moderate length.
Softening substances and lotions are part of the process used by professional salons in SA and can also be used in the do it yourself method as long as you have the right products. There are also salons in South Africa that paint intricate designs and patterns on a women’s nails as part of having a professional manicure or pedicure. It really depends on your requirements and individual taste. If you are looking for a way of freshening up the look and feel of your hands and have tried other things with little or no success then follow the tips and information on doing your own French manicure at home or visit your local nail salon.
