Brazilian Expert Manicure from Manucurist, €35.
The hands slipped into disposable plastic gloves impregnated with cream; then, the nails were unevenly brushed with varnish before being “corrected” with a stick impregnated with solvent. The technique is playful, and the pin is perfectly lacquered, even on the edges. So you can take the opportunity to treat yourself to the Balbcare Manicure kit, €4.90, with a pair of gloves, file and stick to redo your treatment later at home. Find out more: 01 47 03 37 33.
Creative And Bespoke

After filing and applying a nude layer, we print the visual of your choice on your nails, chosen from the house proposals or downloaded from your USB key. Great for matching your nails perfectly with the print or lace of your dress or displaying photos of everyone you love on your ten fingers, from your man to your niece’s hamster. And these colourful designs last two weeks. Find out more: 01 42 89 42 89.

The Most Stylish Nail Shape
I am finished with the American square. Slightly rounded at the edges, the nail is more natural. It extends a few millimetres only, to slightly exceed the tip of the finger, but never more so as not to look like a claw. Note: the somewhat retro almond design is on the rise.
The Trick At Home
New reflex: apply a unique formula to regulate the nail’s pH and amplify the varnish’s hold under the base. It is especially essential for sweaty hands whose acid nails tend to make the hairspray “bubble.” Chip Skip At OPI, €19, or Primetime, in the Mani Mini Treatment Trio kit at Orly, €19.
Otherwise, soak a cotton ball in alcohol to degrease the nail.
