      New way to do "French Tip" style. Stretch a rubberband across the nail. It pulls the skin back too, so I don't get the nail polish everywhere and it's less time consuming than putting on stickers or tape on every finger. #fingernail #finger #nail #polish #lacquer #manicure #pedicure #rubberband #rubber #band #french
