Hi, everyone. My name is Joi and I'm a licensed manicurist and I want to show you all today how to care for a French manicure. So I have my white polish here, top coat and then I also have a buffer. Okay a couple things to remember with a French manicure is this is not a style that's meant to last for a long period of time so with that in mind if you do find that you do get a chip or two in your polish. What you want to do is first take your buffer, if you have nay rough spots and just smooth those out, working outwards towards the edge because you want to create a nice smooth surface to reapply your white polish to. Okay so we smoothed just a little bit, and I'm going to take the white polish and I'm going to go over the spots that were chipped. Okay if you find that the application is looking a little uneven you can actually go over the entire white line it wont hurt. The line is usually very thin to begin with, okay, focusing on the top where most chips usually occur, okay you'll let that sit for just a couple of seconds there so it can dry and then follow up with of course a bit of top coat. Okay and this is just a quick fix this is not something that you want to do repeatedly, but if you find that you know you've gone a couple of days and you've already got a chip or two this is just something that you can do very quickly to smooth that out. Okay and so we're nice and repaired there. So thank you all for watching and my name is Joi, bye.
