  • I HIGHLY recommend getting a french pedicure. :) The best way to relax. You don't need long nails, they'll shape them for you. the massage your feet and legs and then cover them w/ hot towels. Then the paint the white strip on your nails, touch it up and you're good to go! Like I said, it's wonderful.

  • They dont have to be crazy long. Just a nicely manicured length. I keep mine short and get mine french tipped always and then my best friend, she wears her toe nails quite a bit longer in the summer and has hers Frenched as well. Personally, I tend to think it looks better on shorter groomed nails...

  • It depends on how good the salon is. Some do it free hand and others use guiding tape strips. It doesn't matter the length of your toenails. It should look great either way.

  • a french mani/pedi can be done on any length, it is just painted on to the end of the nail, no matter the length
