    No, they are classic, elegant, and timeless.

    Yes, they are out of style.

    I don’t think they’re out of style, but I definitely think they can look tacky. (Yeah, I said it.) On super long nails, or when the white tip is super thick, I just think it looks gaudy almost. I know everyone has different taste, but that is just my personal opinion. I think a French manicure can look delicate and classy when the white tip is thinner and is on a very groomed, shorter nail. I stopped wearing French manicures a long time ago because I just don’t love the way it looks on my hands, but I don’t think they’re out of style. There are very many high class ladies who will only rock a French manicure.

     

    There’s a difference.

     

     

    ETA: I didn’t realize that the poster above me also posted the same nails. As an apology, enjoy.

    As long as they aren’t huge square nails with tons of acrylic. Trendy nails right now are one solid color on all nails.

    I don’t care about my nails being “trendy” — especially on my wedding day.

     

    I currently have a french tip gel manicure, but will have squared french tip acrylics for the wedding.

    @star_dust:  Hahaha! I’m glad I’m not the only one who looked at those nails and shuddered!

    @Bazingau:  I love how sheer this one is, and up close it almost looks like a very muted French. I wear sheer colors a lot for this reason – I like how you can just see my nail through the polish.

    @MrsNewDay:  I have such a hard time picking between Essie neutrals. I know they all basically serve the same purpose, but I love so many. I picked up Essie Marshmellow today because I love white nails, but not while nails that look like they were painted with white out.

    Also, the shoes are Valentino rockstud heels 🙂

    What you posted is great! It’s classic and beautiful. But of course it can be done wrong.

    Example: THIS IS NOT OKAY!!!!!!!!

    I love a really well-done french manicure and think it would never go out of style. If I get one, I ask the a softer white, so it isn’t so harsh. Unfortunately, I’ve found many places around where I live just don’t do a good job on the french, so I don’t really get them often. I like a really thin line of really soft white color for the tips and so many times I’ve gotten them done and the tips are too thick and uneven. 

    So normally I opt for a light, pale color and do it myself. I need to practice French Manicures and give myself one the way I like it! This post has inspired me to practice!

    @AllieANT:  I really REALLY recommend these. Mine last about 1 week to 2 weeks. You can also adjust the amount of white that you put on your nails. It makes the perfect at home french really REALLY easy. This chick used what looks like a thick polish on top. I usually do a thinner white strip and one coat of a clear on top.

    I love the french tip look regardless if it is acrylic or paint on natural nails. I think it is classic, matches everything and doesn’t scream “pay attention to me!”

    I have acrylic nails (always have thanks to my crazy life and schedule) as they always look perfect despite my abuse via sports. I do keep them very, very short to the point where they barely pass my finger tips…any longer and they drive me insane.

    I find it a bit obnoxious some of the things people have said on here. I get compliments almost daily on my nails and while they may be acrylic I will take well done acrylic nails over the frequently observed let go/not maintained/bitten off/chipped paint natural nails I see on a regular basis. With acrylic I do them once every four weeks (my guy is amazing) and don’t touch them in the meantime and they always look great.
