The DIY French Manicure

 O.P.I Avoplex Cuticle Treatment   Sally Hansen Gel Cuticle Remover
O.P.I funny Bunny   O.P.I Barre My Soul    Seche Vite Top Coat

Recently all I have been wearing on my nails is a classic french manicure, nothing makes my nails look so neat and "done" without using colour.  First things fist, getting rid of overgrown cuticles. The first thing I do is apply a blob of Sally Hansen cuticle remover on each nail and leave for 3-4 minutes. This product helps to break down the dead skin of the cuticle for easy removal, I then use a cuticle remover to push them back once the cuticle remover has worked it's magic.  To keep my cuticles in good shape I use the O.P.I Avoplex Cuticle Treatment which contains avocado oil to keep cuticles hydrated and nourished. For the white tips I use O.P.I Funny Bunny, a muted soft white for a more natural looking tip with O.P.I's Barre My Soul (NYC Ballet Collection) all over the nail, again a very natural looking pink which makes the nails look lovely and healthy. To top it all off I always use my favourite top coat, Sech Vite, the only top coat which gives me chip free nails for 4-6 days. Sech Vite top coat will set you back around £11 but I think it's worth every penny.
