Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, licensed manicurist, and I want to show you all today how to do a French manicure without stencils. So in addition to my polishes, my white and my neutral color, I'm going to also be using this French manicure brush and I'm going to be using a bit of acetone. Okay so to start off I will take my white and I'm going to be making three lines, they're not necessarily going to be the neatest because I'm going to go back in, in just a second here with my brush and then I'm going to shape the line. So I take the brush dip it into a little bit of the acetone, okay and I'm just going to carve out a nice smooth line there, going from the center to the edge and we'll do that on both sides. If a little bit gets on the skin on the side just take the brush and clean it off with that acetone that remains. Okay and if you want the line to appear just a bit bolder you can repeat with the second layer. And then the next thing to give it a bit more of a natural look we're going to follow with the neutral color polish, going right over the top and you want to make sure that when yo get to the white part that you go very lightly so that you don't smear it and you want to cover out to the edges. Okay pretty quick, pretty simple and there you have your French manicure without using stencils. So I hoped that I helped you all out with this and thanks for watching. My name is Joi, bye.
