Pink Gellac Gel Polish French Manicures
I’ve been practicing my French manicure skills for class recently, and I thought I’d share the two applications that I did using Pink Gellac. I’m often asked for recommendations for base colors that can be used for French manicures, and these two colors worked perfectly!
For this first French manicure I used Pink Gellac French Pink as the base, and Soft White for the tips. This polish was specifically designed with this purpose in mind, hence the name. French Pink is a sheer gel polish with a pink tint, providing a very natural look. I applied two coats of this, and then applied white across the tips with one stroke from side to side. I went over the tips twice to ensure perfect, even coverage.
I created a video that shows how to accomplish a French mani with gel polish a while ago… watch it here. In this video, I applied white across the tip and then used a brush dipped in alcohol to perfect the smile line which is a great trick if you aren’t able to paint the smile line exactly how you want it.
For my second French manicure I used Pink Gellac Blush Orange with Soft White. Blush Orange is a popular neutral shade at the Boutique, and I wanted to experiment and see how it would look in a French design. I absolutely loved the result! It’s not quite as classic of a look as the other, but it really seemed to pop on my nails and they looked a little like they might even be enhancements and not just polish. I received a lot of compliments from this mani!
