Hey everyone!

Today I'm going to show you an easy way to do french tips! Before I would always just freehand a french tip and use a small brush in acetone to clean it up and make it perfect. But one day I seen an even easier way to do it, paper reinforcements! I highly suggest to buy these, they make french tips and half moon designs super easy!

Onto the tutorial.


  1. Apply the paper reinforcement to your nail, position it however you like that suits you best.
  2. Apply 1 coat of your nail polish, give it about 20 seconds to dry a bit, then add the second coat.
  3. Remove the paper reinforcement immediately after applying the polish to your nail. You should have a nice crisp/clean line.
  4. (Optional): Apply glitter polish creating a border and outlining the french tip.
  5. Apply your topcoat and your done!


Here's the full manicure!

  • L.A. Girl Color Pop - Nostalgic
  • Paper Reinforcements
  • NYC - Grand Central Station (topcoat)
