{DIY} French Manicure [Beauty Blog Backtrack]

after returning from New York Fashion Week on Monday i hit the road again to spend a few days in Las Vegas with Tman. because the fun and exhaustion of this week has left me wanting to curl into the fetal position and sleep for days, i decided to post a few Beauty Blog Backtracks for relief. this nail post is one of my most popular yet (thank you, Pinterest).

every once in a while i find a product that i LOVE and i cannot wait to share it with you. some past favorites include Seche Vite, Make Up For Ever, and St. Tropez. with that same enthusiasm, i am excited to introduce you to Dashing Diva French Wraps. these tiny little French Manicure tips give you the perfect French Manicure, quickly and easily.

my sisters are always a trusted source for beauty advice, and on my recent trip home to Washington state, my sister recommended these little beauties to me. let me say that they are so easy to apply, and they are fast, but the downside is that they only last a few days. this would make a great solution for Prom, graduation dinners, any sort of special event you may have approaching. with up to 14 manicure applications per box, $1 per manicure is a small price to pay for professional looking nails.

here is how they are applied:

select the appropriate size "housing" for your nail size

add some brush-on glue ONLY to white tip

with the easy grip tab, place housing in desired spot on nail tip. wait a few seconds, then gently remove "housing" and only white nail tip remains.

salon quality french manicure for a fraction of the cost!

so easy, so fast, and inexpensive. those are the key ingredients to a perfect product.



  1. These are really neat! Are they just tips?

    1. Arielle, these are a very thin tip that doesn't require any special product over the top. they really do look gorgeous once applied.

    2. I have been using these for a few weeks and you need to apply the special base seal and then 2 top coats and then they will last fr up to 2 weeks. Look on eBay for the complete sets they are well worth it. Struggling to find the refills in the uk though as these are clearly for professionals here.

  2. Do you know if they're available in stores or just to professionals/someone with a connection? I've looked for a few minutes with no success. Thanks!

    1. Emily, this is so weird! i was just on their website last week and they were available, i checked tonight and they weren't listed. perhaps it is only temporary?

    2. i just found them on in about 15 different shades :)

  3. This looks fun!
    I wonder where to get them.

  4. This is so awesome doll and thank you for sharing.
