The debate has long gone on about the difference between American and French manicures. Ladies could probably debate for hours at a time about which one is the best. American manicures are very similar to French manicures but there are some key differences.
Instead of the white tip or the pink overlay American manicures use more natural coloring to design the nails. The tip color is generally closer to a crème color. American manicures are generally closer to the color of natural nails. This type of polish probably looks the most natural when put on artificial nails. American manicures do not have the bright pink or white coloring but they are just as elegant as many people prefer the more laid back tones of an American manicure.
Just like with a French manicure customers have the final say so over how exactly they want the nails designed. Many people prefer American manicures because they do not want people to know they wear false nails. They want their nails to appear real and the American manicure can help those interested in this.
American manicure kits can be purchased from retail locations. The great thing about the kit is not only are they cheaper than going to the salon but they give simple step by step instructions on how to apply the nails. For those individuals who want to give a try at home they should not have a problem applying the nails. These kits generally contain the same type of materials or similar ones that are used in professional salons.
