Pink & White nails, also known as “P&W’s” or “Permanent French Manicure”, are a growing trend that more and more customers are demanding. You will love “P&W’s” for their beauty, versatility and for ease of wear. A full set of Pink & White nails can easily be achieved with white tips and a clear overlay. Other techs prefer to use clear or natural tips and then add the white free-edge themselves, while others like to sculpt on forms. Whatever method is used to achieve the initial P&W look, eventually they are all going to have to be maintained.
Upon obtaining a Pink & White full set for the first time, our manicurist will give you the option of adding a white or clear tip for length. A white plastic tip is the easiest way to go, while clear tips require a white powder or polish sculpted on top of it. Below is the standard step-by-step process to getting perfect Pink & White nails. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. We always want you have the best nails and values of our services.
Step 1: Prepare your nails by removing any previous nail polish.
Step 2: Sanitize your nails.
Step 3: Trim and shape your nails using a nail file. Take an orangewood and gently push back the cuticles. Take the nail buffer and gently remove the shine on the surface to help the adhesion.
Step 4: Apply forms or tips to the nails.
Step 5: Sparingly apply nail primer to the nails.
Step 6: Dip the brush in acrylic liquid and only then into the acrylic powder to form a ball.
Step 7: Place this ball on your nail’s base and carefully flatten it with the brush, spreading it all over the nail, moving the brush from the base towards the tip.
Step 8: Shape and paint your nails as desired color.
