How to colour block your French manicure

17 July, 2019 1 min read

Because white and nude is cute and all, but colour is where it's at! Use any two contrasting colours you like - we've chosen our faves Raspberry and Impeachment.

You will need cotton pads, Kester Black Nail Cleanser, Kester Black Impeachment, Kester Black Raspberry, plus our Top Coat and Kester Black Self Love Oil.

Step 1. File your nails to your desired nail shape. Apply Kester Black nail cleanser to a cotton pad a wipe over each nail to remove oily residue.

Step 2. Apply a thin layer of base coat to each nail and allow to dry.

Step 3. Glide a coat of Impeachment over each fingernail, coating the surface from base to tip. Let dry for 5 minutes and then repeat the process for a second coat.

SHOP IMPEACHMENT

Step 4. Using a thin brush, paint the tip of each nail with a coat of Raspberry. It should be in the same shape as the tips of a French manicure. Allow to dry for five minutes before applying a second coat to cover any streaks.

SHOP RASPBERRY

Step 5. Seal your colour with one coat of our Top Coats. Make sure to cover the tips of the nails to protect your new mani from chipping. Allow to dry for another 5 minutes. Finally, apply one coat of Kester Black Self Love Oil over your cuticles to ensure your nail stay healthy and happy!
