Hi, everyone. My name is Joi and I am a licensed manicurist, and I want to show you all today how to do a French manicure for dark skin. So I have my white polish which is usually used in a traditional French manicure and then I'm also going to be using a more neutral polish to go over the top of that, reason being is because darker skin if you're using just the white it can tend to look a little bit stark against the brown skin. So we're going to be softening it with this neutral color here. So just to show you what that will look like I'm going to just put the white on, okay and I'm going to go back in and clean up that line in just a second, but as you can see the white against her skin is very bright. The neutral polish that I'm going to put over the top of it is going to soften it and make it look a little bit more natural. Okay so we'll take this neutral color and we'll go right over the top, the whole nail including the white that we just polished and you can see how that's starting to soften it. If you want to make it even more soft of an effect you can go over it with a second coat and then as usual you want to follow up with your top coat. Okay so now she has a nice French manicure for her brown skin tone. So thank you all for watching and enjoy your day, bye.
