    French manicures are essentially enhancing a natural look, right? I don’t see how that coul ever go out of style 🙂 cause then it would also be unstylish to have blank nails.

    What you posted, where it is just an enhancement of the natural nail, looks nice and classic.  I’m really not into the ones where the base is an icky pink and the tip looks like a big thick over exaggerated paddle.

    @moriah:  Agree.

    OP, I hate when the white part starts too low and the tips are squared off. Yuck. What you posted is fine.

    A natural, non-exaggerated French manicure is classic. Some people call it an American manicure when it is subtle…at least that’s what I read here months ago.

    I don’t do trendy…and I always get a simple, soft French manicure.

    French is not out of style by any means, but beware! Even the gel french manicures chip easily! My mom got hers done and the next day they had chipped and we went to a really good place. So maybe try it out before your wedding!

    I think they’re classic, but I think that right now they aren’t the most in style look.

    I don’t think their classic or timeless. I think they’re retro and frankly in bad taste.

     

    In my opinion, clear if you want simple is much better, and red if you want classic.

    @sofiekitty:  I don’t think they’ll ever go out of style.  I think sometimes certain other looks are more “in,” but this is a very classic, elegant look.  I actually don’t mind French manicures with a squared tip, as long as it’s the natural nail (as opposed to an acrylic nail).  I usually get solid color gel manicures as well (I like to play around with different colors each time), but I think I’ll be doing a gel French manicure for my wedding in November.

    @bebero:  you have to explain that one. Bad taste?

    maybe you are thinking of the super white ones? Most are pretty natural looking. Now and then, you see someone with big, white squares…but that’s not common in my area.

    Yes I think they’re very outdated, and reminds me of the year 2000. I think French manicures with big fake tips are hideous (sorry, not sorry). In the picture in your OP, the white is way too thick. I can roll with something like this (but I wouldn’t choose it myself), but most people way overdo the tips. And don’t get me started on french tips on toes. Blech.

    I think they can veer into artificial looking quite easily, but it’s whatever you like OP.
