There’s nothing sexier than a clean, french manicure, so to get the runway look yourself, take some inspiration from the modern french monochromatic mani seen at Tess Giberson Fall/Winter 2014 show.

Inspired by the sportswear vibe of the collection, manicurist Jin Soon Choi created a modern update of the classic french nail look. Using only JINsoon products, grab those beauty cheat sheets, and recreate this sexy look for that next special occasion.

How To DIY A Modern French Mani

Step One: File and clean nails, removing all traces of polish.

Step Two: Apply JINsoon Power Coat base coat.

Step Three: Next, apply two coats of dark grey/metallic black nail polish  (the shade Jin used was from her upcoming JINsoon Fall/Winter 2014 Tess Giberson Collection), let dry.

Step Four: At tip of nail, apply a thin arc of JINsoon Kookie White.

Step Five: Finish by applying a single coat of JINsoon Top Gloss.
