The French Manicure is a timeless look that can be paired with any outfit during any time of the year. It's simple, yet sophisticated and it's an easy way to elevate your style. Here's how to achieve the Classic French Manicure using the OPI Powder Perfection system.

1. Wash your hands and prepare the nails using the steps in the OPI Powder Perfection Service Guide. Pour a small amount of OPI Powder Perfection Alpine Snow into the OPI Powder Perfection Dipping Dish. Pour a small amount of OPI Powder Perfection Bubble Bath & Clear Color Set Powder into small plastic cups.

2. Apply one coat of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat to a single nail, making sure to cover the entire surface of the nail.

3. Create a smile line by dipping the tip of the nail at a 45-degree angle into OPI Powder Perfection Alpine Snow. Immediately dip the entire nail into OPI Powder Perfection Bubble Bath. Tap off excess powder.

4. Repeat on the other 4 nails of the same hand. Continue to work on one nail at a time in order to avoid the base coat from drying too quickly.

5. Use a cosmetic brush to dust off excess powder.

6. Apply a second coat of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat and Color Powders by repeating the same application.

7. Apply one coat of OPI Powder Perfection Base Coat to each nail. Dip each nail at a 45-degree angle into OPI Powder Perfection Clear Color Set Powder. Tap off excess powder.

8. Apply one coat of OPI Powder Perfection Activator to all 5 nails, making sure to cover the entire surface of the nails. Allow to dry completely. While the Activator dries, complete Steps 2-8 on the other hand.

9. Go back to the first hand you started working on and make sure the OPI Powder Perfection Activator is completely dry. Contour the surface if needed by gently filing and buffing the nail.

10. Smooth the surface if needed. Use a light hand when filing and buffing to avoid filing through the OPI Powder Perfection Color Powder layers. Use a cosmetic brush to remove excess powder and filing dust.

11. Apply a second coat of OPI Powder Perfection Activator to all 5 nails and allow 1-2 minutes to dry. Repeat Steps 9-11 on the other hand.

12. Apply one coat of OPI Powder Perfection Top Coat to each nail and allow at least 1 minute to dry. Repeat this application on the other hand.

13. Apply a second coat of OPI Powder Perfection Top Coat to each nail. Allow 1-2 minutes to dry. Repeat this application on the other hand. Dispose any letover OPI Powder Perfection Color Powders and Clear Color Set Powder.

Dip and tap each color 2-3 times until the desired amount of coverage is achieved. Repeat on the other 4 nails of the same hand, working on one nail at a time.
