Nail Art: 4 New Ways to wear a French Manicure

Nail Art: 4 New Ways to wear a French Manicure

by Paige Exell -

The French tip dates as far back as the 18th century. The look had a brief hiatus sometime in the mid-2000s – and now, especially now that most have moved on to more exciting things like chrome nails, for example. But the latest incarnations are a far cry from the thick, angular acrylics of decades past. Rose petal decals, Mondrian outlines, and fishnet accents offer new ways to wear a French manicure right now.

NAIL ART: 4 NEW WAYS TO WEAR A FRENCH MANICURE

FRENCH FISHNETS

French tips and fishnets go hand in hand style wise, so why not combine the two vampy choices into one? Start with a bare nail, then hand paint a grid or use a nail stencil to get the crosshatched design. Once dry, paint your tips white and finish with a clear base.

FLORAL DECALS

The signature look

An easy addition to the French tip? Decals. After creating the traditional look, layer a thin coat of clear top coat. While tacky, gingerly set your design and press down. Finish with a topcoat to secure.

MONDRIAN OUTLINES

Focus on this manicure's ring finger. The white tip is lined in black for a graphic, Mondrian-esque design. Use stencils and stickers to help you out!

Apply the concept of French manicure – white tips with a nude base – to the ongoing ombre trend. For best results, apply the two polishes on a makeup sponge and continuously dab onto the nail. Finish with a topcoat!
