French manicures are designed to resemble natural nails, and are characterized by natural pink base nails with white tips. French manicures were one of the first popular and well known color schemes. French manicures may have originated in the eighteenth-century in Paris but were most popular in the 1920s and 1930s. However the traditional French manicures were much different from what we know today. They were generally red, while leaving a round crescent shape at the top blank to enhance the lunula of the nail, known now as a half moon manicure.[citation needed]

Ancient Babylonian men manicured and colored their nails using kohl, with different colors representing different classes. The upper echelons wore black while the lower classes wore green. They also created the world's first, and most lavish, manicure set — the tools were made from solid gold! Kelly Osbourne and her $250,000 manicure have nothing on these guys.
After using it a few times, I thought I should note that with two coats, it still looks pretty streaky and the polish is a bit too thick to get a really even coat each time. The picture shows what it looks like after three coats, what I'm unable to show is that it's still not completely hardened after a coat of Seche Vite fast-drying top coat and 45 minutes. I'm going to add a few drops of OPI polish thinner and try again... I'll update if I can get it to go on better after thinning slightly.

“The typical infections we would be concerned about with nail salons are the standard run-of-the-mill bacterial infections like staph or strep that occur when you have a breakdown in the skin,” he said. “We are also concerned about more exotic infections like atypical microbacterial infections—which are basically cousins of tuberculosis—and those have been reported in nail salons and those are typically difficult to diagnose and they require very long treatment on antibiotics. We are also concerned about fungal infections.”

“It may feel nice to soak your hands in warm water before your mani but the water actually bloats the nail, causing it to soften and expand. After the manicure, your nails will eventually shrink back down which causes the bond and adhesion of the polish to be compromised, leading to chipping and peeling polish. Bottom line? Dry manicures last longer.” —Lisa Jachno
For those looking to make a statement with their nails, go chrome. The mirror manicure was named a trend by both Pinterest and Reader's Digest. To achieve the look, each nail is first cleaned and shaped. Then a coat of black polish is applied, cured, and buffed. Next, top coat is applied and cured, before putting on a mirror powder. It is sealed with a top coat, cured, and buffed. It finishes with a gel top coat to create a shiny mirrored effect.
You might think bare toenails are ugly, but nails need to breathe and have moisture, and polish acts as a barrier. So skip the nail polish for a week or longer each month and enjoy the low-maintenance look. It's a good idea to remove your nail polish if you can't fix it as soon as it chips. Your toenails are vulnerable to damage in the spots where polish is missing. If by some miracle your polish lasts two weeks, go ahead and change it anyway.

One thing we know for sure is that healthy nails start at the salon — and that’s true now more than ever. New technology has made it possible to not only reduce the removal time, but in some cases even protect and strengthen your nails. In fact, OPI recently launched its GelColor ProHealth, which includes a two-step system featuring a nourishing basecoat and a wear-and-tear protective topcoat that can keep nails shiny for up to two weeks. The pair works in tandem to create a healthy gel application, but the real innovation is its patent-pending ProHealth technology that promises to cut the removal time in half, taking it from 15 minutes to a speedy seven.
