Ok so my mum said to me she uses a white striper pen for french pedicures and i always thought "cheat" lol! I've never had a problem doing french polish, even on the toes, HOWEVER I just bought a load of nail art pens and one of them was white. As my own toes needed doing I thought I'd give it a go, WOW! Its gives such a nice look. Its so nice and thin, perfect for the toes, and saves fannying about getting the white of the skin because you dont have a OTT wide brush!
Ok definatly reccomend it though I can imagine all you super smart techs prob do this already sigh ... :lol:

Yeah i use a striper brush to do french sooooo much easier in fact i have just done my mates toes as she is pregnant and cant bend down any more lol i found it so much easier to do it this way and have doing it for about 6 months now.
I also tried airbrushing white tips on toes what a nightmare now i stick to stripers:)

Thats a great idea, I wondered if there was an easier way for doing french on toes as I seem to have to clear up quite a bit.

I'm gonna give this a go! :)

How do you clean the brush afterwards? Do you just use nail polish remover and wipe the brush until it's clean?

That's just about right, hun. Do try it! I've always done it like that, and it's real easy...
