Dashing Diva’s French Wrap Plus system is truly innovative—and I don’t throw around that word very often. Essentially, it is an appliqué of sorts that is encased in a plastic housing. After the bonding glue is applied, the nail fits right into the plastic and bumps against a little edge so you know it’s in all the way. After it’s secured to the nail, a toenail clipper removes the housing in seconds. Finish with a base and top sealer, and you’re done! The perfect (really, it’s perfect!) smile lines, every single time, for a non-chipping, long-lasting French manicure.
