- French manicures have resurfaced in popularity in recent years.
- In addition to the standard French manicure, other approaches to nail art have arisen.
- Some of the most popular variations include the side-tip, V-cut, double, inverted, and reverse french tips.
If we were to pick one beauty trend as the year’s audience favourite, it would have to be the french manicure. This nail-art fad has seen a significant rebirth in recent years, and it is still going strong. Not only did we see a lot of the original version of the old-made-new-again nail design, but there have also been a slew of spinoff variants of the french mani, resulting in an altogether new type of modern french manicure. And, to be honest, they’ve been difficult to keep track of.
Side-tip, inverted, double, two-toned, and shadow are just a few of the current modifications on the French manicure. Just open Instagram, TikTok, or Pinterest and we guarantee you’ll see at least one of these — and if you follow stars like Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, and Dua Lipa, you’ll see them on a daily basis. Identifying each nail-art trend by name takes some practise, but you don’t have to feel left out any more. We’ve included a list of all the numerous sorts of french manicure designs below.
The only thing left to do is choose a colour scheme after you know exactly what you want and can explain it to your manicurist at your next session. The colours of French manicures change with the seasons. Rainbow french manicures are trendy in the spring and summer, but you can wear them any time of year, and chrome french manicures are the go-to for winter. Experimenting with different forms of nail art is one of the best (and simplest) ways to express yourself, so don’t be afraid to go bold and push outside of your comfort zone. The possibilities are endless.
Chrome French Manicures
Chrome nails are trendy, but the chrome-french-manicure trend blends two popular styles into one. It’s a favourite of celebrities like as Lipa, Chlöe, and others.
Shadow French Manicure
On your fingertips, shadow french manicures create an optical illusion. The design includes a colour gradient that gives your nails a psychedelic, shadowy appearance.
Glazed-Doughnut French Manicure
Hailey Bieber popularised glazed-doughnut nails, but since then, many individuals have been putting their own touch on the trend. The glazed-doughnut french manicure has a white tip and a glazed foundation.
V-Cut French Manicure
There is no typical French tip for the V-cut French manicure trend. Instead, it features two lines that cross in a V shape at the end of the nail.
The “deconstructed” French manicure is an abstract interpretation of the nail-art aesthetic. It has a neutral foundation with splashes of colour at the tip of the nail instead of the conventional smooth stroke.
