Even with a vast variety of nail polish colours available at our fingertips, there are some nail art styles that transcend time and trends, just because of how eternally classic they are. The French manicure falls under this bracket. Whether it is an engagement function you are heading to or a job interview, your nails need to be presentable and groomed—something the French manicure does best.

If you’re ready to try your hand at it, read our guide on how to do a French manicure at home for you to sport the style on your talons.

Step 1

After readying your bare nail base by filing and buffing, get your tools in order—the French manicure tip stickers, a neutral beige nail polish shade, a transparent nail polish shade and a white nail polish shade.

Step 2

Paint your nails with a single coat of the neutral beige nail polish shade and wait for it to dry for 15 minutes. Once your nails are completely dry, proceed to paint them with another coat of the same shade. This step is to ensure an even nail base that looks natural.

Step 3

Position the French manicure sticker horizontally, approximately below where the white tip of the nail appears. Once adjusted, stick it in place.

Step 4

Use the white nail polish shade to paint the tip of your nail which is exposed over the sticker. Let it dry for 15 minutes and proceed to paint just the nail tip with a coat of white nail polish.

Step 5

Once the nail tip has dried, gently peel off the sticker from your nail. Follow this by painting your entire nail with a single transparent coat. There you have it, a chic French manicure!

Of course, it goes without saying that for a spectacular manicure, it is important to trust the experts. That’s why we prefer to head to the Lakmé Salon for all our nail needs. Being the leaders in the field of wellness and cosmetics, we trust them to walk out with a stellar manicure.
