How to:

Paint your nails with a base coat and let it dry completely. Wrap a broad rubber band right below the tip of your nail and stretch it from below with your thumb or other finger to keep it firm. Take your nail paint and paint the tip of your nail. Then take the rubber band off carefully. This will give you a neat and salon-like French manicure. Repeat the same with rest of the nails and finish with a top coat.
