The French manicure is one of the most popular nail trends in existence, and for good reason. The clear base and classy white tip go with just about every outfit and are suited for most (if not all) occasions. The French manicure is the queen of practicality and style.

At the moment, many nail salons are closed due to COVID-19. And even when they’re open, a French manicure runs around $30. Of course, many of us still want to keep our manicures current, despite being homebound; having done up nails really helps keep a bit of normalcy in our day-to-day routines.

Thankfully, a salon-looking French manicure is only 10 minutes and less than $10 away. The best part? It can be done from the comfort of home! Do It On a Dime, a popular Youtube blogger, beautifully demonstrates the simplicity of doing a French manicure at home. With the help of some purchased press-on nails that are French manicure style, she creates a gorgeous manicure and walks you through how to do it, too!
