1. Clean up your claws with clippers, a cuticle stick, and a file, then buff away bumps with a buffer to create a smooth canvas for your artwork.
2. Paint on glossy clear gel polish for the base of your French manicure and allow it to air-dry.
3. Use a thin brush to paint the white half-moon tips of your classic manicure.
4. Now get ready to amp up your look with a dotting tool and some red nail polish. Use the dotting tool to create perfectly round cherries on the tip of each nail. Two look perfect!
5. Grab a green fine-tipped nail art pen or the small detail brush, then draw on the cherry stems in a "V" design right above the two cherries. They look good enough to eat!
6. Seal in your style with a gel top coat, which strengthens your nails and keeps your cherries cheerful for longer!
