Hi everyone, my name is Joi, Licensed Nail Technician, and today I'm going to talk to you about French manicure versus pink and white. So, I have a couple of tools here for French manicure; I've got my French manicure brush and then I have my French manicure colors. So, to start off, the difference is a French manicure is just using regular polish and a French manicure brush. So, it's just a basic manicure with a different design to it. A pink and white is actually going to be a sculptured nail, nail technique. Sculptured meaning that you're using acrylics and you would put the white on first using a nail form and then you would actually sculpture out the rest of the nail with the pink. Another huge difference between the two is that pink and whites are permanent. They're acrylics which means that in order to get them off, you would actually be using acetone and soaking the nails for about 15 to 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the sculptured nails. So, just to show you one of the bigger differences also is the time factor. So, French manicure can be done really quickly, little bit of white polish. Okay. Clean up with your French brush and your acetone. Follow that, if you choose with a layer of a natural color over the top and then you complete everything with top coat. This can be done very quickly, less than a half an hour and you know, in comparison with the pink and white, you just remove this with regular nail polish remover or acetone. So there you go, I hope you guys now understand the difference between a French manicure and a pink and white and again, my name is Joi. Bye.
