I just got a mani pen to give myself French tips and I love it but my hands are very shaky especially my left so I need to know
Any tricks to doing your own French tips and making it look professional?

Hmm, I just rest my hand on the edge of a table and hold the brush with the other hand closely so I have more control. I've never used a mani pen.  Let us know how it comesout!

Rest both of your arms on a table, hold the pen still with one hand and roll the finger you are painting underneath it.

Honestly, just practice.  I used to get my manicures done at a salon.  But after a while they changed some of their products they used and I didn't like the results.  I also realized that after seeing it done so often and knowing what products they used that I *did* like, I could simply do my own for a fraction of the cost.  I know that painting nails with your non-dominant hand can be a bit difficult.  But rest it on the table like the others mentioned and just keep practicing with it.  After a while, it won't bother you anymore.
