Step 1: Use a neutral polish color to give your nails a nice, even tone. The natural tip of your nails should not show through the polish color. We love Mented’s Nude Nail Polish.

Step 2: Now here’s the hack. Instead of using a brush to apply the thin line directly to your nails—a skill that requires pro-level talent—try this trick. Brush nail polish directly to a makeup sponge. Then press the tip of your nails into the sponge. 

Step 3: Apply a clear top coat. And just like that, you have a quick, foolproof hack for Spring’s Micro French mani nail trend!

Lime Green Vibes 

A neon hue keeps things interesting. This vibrant green is unexpected and super creative.

Keep It Sleek

You can’t go wrong with a traditional white French tip. Switch it up with a nude that’s slightly lighter or darker than your natural skin tone.
