I’m scared that the white tips are going to stand out too much?! Do most people go for the French paint, or are you sticking with a solid colour?? Is it still a classic choice? Or has it seen it’s day? Opinions ladies!!! 😀

I think it still looks very nice but only on short nails. With long nails, it just looks like talons.
PS – I have a french pedi right now!

I think it’s still classic. I’m planning on doing one for mine, and I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in June and we all did French manicures and it looked really classy. They put a beigey color over the white, so it’s not like it’s screaming “I’M WHITE!”. I feel like it makes your nails look clean and crisp.

And yes – I agree with MissAsB – none of us had fake nails on or long nails. They were just normal length.

I’m not a big fan of the French manicure – I think it can look nice, but it’s just not my style.
I prefer to stick with sheer pink nail polish. Try something like Ballet Slippers by Essie – still understated and classy, but without the more severe of the white in a French manicure.

Everyone looked at me like I was weird when I said I didn’t want a french manicure…I don’t like the look too much, especially if it’s on fake nails! I just used a solid essie color on my natural nails and loved it! I am glad I didn’t listen to people that said I “had” to get french.

I went for a sheer creamy pink…..I thought it was perfect and classy, but I’m biased :o)

I’m going to go w/a sheer creamy pink over a french manicure. I haven’t really found a shade that I love though. Any suggestions?

I feel like I don’t see french manicures very much anymore, but that might just be around here. I went with a light pink polish.

i don’t think french manicures stick out at all. i got a light pink color, just b/c i love pink.

@JennyChicago: Your natural colored manicured nails look great!! French tips look good on a lot of women, but not all. You made a great choice!

I love french manicures for special occasions. But I wear a natural looking pink color for everyday.

i’m biased against french nails.. i used to love them but seeing them over done, and done so wrong has made me change my mind. lol people have the white part toooooo white and it looks unnatural to me. i prefer a solid color.
