Yesterday I had this odd yearning to paint my fingers, but not traditionally - I really wanted to do a french manicure. Some steps to doing one?

2.) Apply 1-2 coats of a pale pink, light purple, or clear nail polish. I did one coat of OPI's Kiss on the Chic.
And it's as simple as that.
Don't mind the writing on my hand, but here's a picture of the final product:
