#42 These pink French tip nails are adorned by studs for a ravishing appearance. One of the ways to prevent studs from falling off your manicure is to try to avoid getting your nails wet for at least 24 hours after applying them. This will give the studs time to fully adhere to your nail polish and become more durable.
#43 French tip nail designs have become quite versatile and can be worn for any occasion with just a few tweaks. Here, the tips are lined with wreath patterns that serve as perfect Christmas nails.

- Let the top coat dry completely, and then your French manicure is ready to show off!
Note: If you are not confident in your ability to create a straight line with the nail brush or nail art tool, you can also use nail stickers or decals to create the French tip design. These are pre-made designs that can be easily applied to the nail, and they can help you achieve a perfect French manicure at home.
