Nails manicured with French tips in a berry color.This is my easy do it yourself method for French tips featuring Q-tips. First, you need to select a color for your French tips, I usually do white but since it's summer, I thought it would be fun to paint my colors a berry color. To be exact, I used Revlon Berry Delicious #770.



  • nail polish
  • Q-tips
  • acetone nail polish remover
  • clear top coat
Supplies for doing French Tips at home.


  1. Apply one coat of your desired nail polish. You do not need to apply nail polish to the entire nail, just half or the tips only. Allow the nail polish to dry.
  2. A first coat of nail polish for French tips.
  3. If sheer, apply another coat and allow the nail polish to dry.
  4. Nails painted halfway, ready for French tips.
  5. Pour acetone/nail polish remover into the cap.

    Dipping a Q-tip into a bottlecap of acetone.
  7. Dip your q-tip into the nail polish remover and start to brush into the motion of your curved nail tips to get a nice smooth curve. Repeat for all your nails.
