In this video, we learn how to paint a black and white French design for short nails. First, paint a diagonal stripe down the nails with white nail polish. You may need to apply two coats of white polish to get a strong color on the nail. Let this dry, then grab a very fine brush and use black nail polish to paint a design onto the white part of the nail. Apply dots and different lines to make the pattern turn out how you want it to be. When finished, you will have a beautiful nail design that's all your own!
