It’s almost hard to believe, but yes, the French manicure is back! Fear not, it looks little like its ‘90s sister. Instead, the modern French mani is cool and colorful. Designers took to the runway to display digits from matte neutrals to bold metallics. Key is the nail stripe which should be extreme in thinness or thickness. Get inspired here and DIY at home!
Rachel Roy reverses the traditional French mani by placing a bold, curved tan line at the opposite end of the nail tip and then filling the majority of the nail with Fall’s hottest nail color oxblood red. Use Butter London lacquer in Tea With The Queen and La Moss to get the look.
Glitter-dusted tips by Red Carpet Manicure created a moody moment on the Nicholas K runway. Proving the new French manicure is anything but sweet. Channel the grunge-glam finish with Essie's Chinchily and Set In Stones.
