A Guide to the Perfect French Manicure: A Must-Have Skill
The French manicure is an evergreen classic in the world of nail art. Known for its elegance, simplicity, and unparalleled versatility, it's a style that continues to be on trend. As Nail Technicians, we know that the art of a perfect French manicure lies not only in technique but also in the quality of products used. Let's dive into how to create the perfect French manicure and which Miss Dolla products we recommend for the process.
The Timeless Appeal of the French Manicure
A French manicure, characterised by a natural nail bed and a distinctive white tip, is endlessly versatile! From a business conference to a birthday party, a French manicure never fails to deliver. However, achieving this coveted style requires a steady hand, keen attention to detail, and the right gel nail polish. This is where Miss Dolla makes all the difference.

Crafting the Perfect French Manicure with Miss Dolla
Let's delve into the step-by-step process of creating a flawless French manicure using Miss Dolla products:
Step 1: Preparing the Nails
The journey to the perfect French manicure begins with clean, well-prepped nails. File the nails to the desired shape, buff away all the shine and then use Hybrid Primer and pH Bonder to create a clean, smooth surface.
Step 2: Applying the Base Coat
There are a couple of options you can use for the base coat depending on your client's preferences and needs. You can either apply the standard Base Coat or use a Rubber Base Coat for added strength and flexibility. This will not only protect the nail bed but also enhance the longevity of the French manicure.
Step 3: Painting the Nail Bed
Choose a Miss Dolla nude or pale pink gel nail polish that suits your client's skin tone. Check out our ‘French’ collection for every French manicure shade you could possibly need in your gel nail kit! Apply two thin coats, ensuring that each coat is fully cured before proceeding to the next.
Step 4: Designing the French Tip
Now, it's time to paint the white tip, the defining feature of a French manicure. Use Miss Dolla's gel nail polish in the shade “White” and use a liner nail brush to draw a line following the natural curve of the French tip. Accuracy and patience are paramount in this step. A French tip can either be straight, or with a deep curve known as a ‘smile line’. Smile lines are on trend at the moment but always make sure to check what your client prefers!
Top Tip: French tips don’t have to be white! You can use any gel colour to create a tip. Our personal favourite is the shade “Tangerine Dream”.
Step 5: Sealing the Deal with a Top Coat
Once the tip is completely dry, seal it with Miss Dolla’s Diamond Shine Top Coat, or our Matte Top Coat if your client prefers the frosted look. It not only provides a lustrous finish but also protects the manicure from chips and fading.
In the world of beauty, every detail counts. Embrace the classic French manicure and stay on trend with Miss Dolla's fantastic range of products.
