I'm stil not quite understanding the American Manicure. What products could you use to get the effect?
I just bought the Orly Beverly Hills (which is like the American Manicure, I think). The white (for the tips) isn't as stark white and the the white in the French Manicure. They have a "kit", but I just bought a full size bottle of the Sheer White (for the tips) and the Beverly Hills Plum to use over it. I already have the Bonder (basecoat) and a Topcoat that I like.
