French Manicures Made Modern
The latest French-inspired designs are making what was once old-school downright très chic. These new silhouettes are a reminder that subtle shapes can still yield moment-making manis.

Feeling that truly nothing is more covetable than a sexy French manicure, this season we wanted you to meet two very modern interpretations of the classic shape. Both evoking barely-there appeal, these cutting-edge adaptations will leave your hands with a little je ne sais quoi.

For our Sheer Drama design: the brighter colors, the better. Our favorite high-impact shades? Cobalt blue, neon fuchsia, chartreuse, and graphic colors like black and white. The exaggerated swoop maintains the femininity of the French silhouette while elevating the overall aesthetic and making it a touch edgier (in a still-wearable way).

Our neon-and-nude Top Notch design is perfectly playful and proof that a tiny sliver of a bold color can be insanely impactful. This effortless design is extremely versatile and looks casually cool in shades like lime green, orange, yellow, and rosy pink.
