Oh, I’ve seen those, just didn’t know what they were called.  Thank you!

I think french manicures have an identity crisis.  They’re supposed to be “fancy” but what they really are mimicking is natural, bare, healthy nails.  Bare nails do not say fancy to me.  Painted nails, in a color complimentary to the overall outfit, is the “fanciest” nail look I can think of (although not too fancy for everyday wear).  

I’ve never liked acrylic square tip french manicures.  I hate them actually.  I guess the natural ones aren’t bad, but you could really get the same look with a sheer color over top like a PP said.  I think that would be preferred. 

There are so many beautiful nail polish colors out there, both bold and sheer, that I couldn’t force myself to ever go with the “bare” look.

I don’t personally like the look, but my best friend had hers done with french tips for her wedding. My colors are berries and gold, so I probably will do a deep berry color or nude.

socalgirl1689:  I had a french for my wedding, but only because I got acrylics as I was a horrible nail biter and just wanted something. I thought they turned out OK, and now I’m not a nail biter anymore!

I’ve had it done another time with a gel manicure once my nails grew out, and I liked it. It’s simple and classic. I’d easily get it done again.

I am having some fun with a french manicure style right now. One of my Bible study friends had hers done with pink tips and I was like, cool! So I use one of my Del Sol color changing gold glitters to do my tips and so I get the red look outside and the gold look inside. lol

I’ve never really been a fan of the french manicure and I’m glad to see it less, personally! It looks so stark, and often they’re not done properly so they don’t look remotely natural. I’ll be doing one of my go-to Zoya colors, in a neutral color or perhaps red if I’m feeling it day-of ๐Ÿ™‚

Kacie209:  I second all of this. I could not stop biting my nails leading up the wedding, so I opted to get an acrylic French mani and I loved it! 

To each their own I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

Not out of style at all.   But I think since gels are more popular these days , ladies are doing more solid colors.

I just took off my pink and whites a few months ago after two years.  My nails are weak and im growing them out, now im going for the au naturel look with sheers while trying to repair my nails.

I wasn’t going to do a french manicure, but my bridesmaids kind of convinced me – and I loved it! It was more of a thin, curved line on the tips that that awful, thick, straight white line across the top. Much more delicate. This is gel, By The Way, and it lasted almost two weeks after the wedding – totally worth it!

I am planning on having french, for one key reason, my nails grow quickly (I get regular gel manicures every 10 days) and since my honeymoon will be 3 weeks french nails will not look too horrible when they are growing out ๐Ÿ™‚

I went with OPI Bubblebath. I’ve never been a fan of french manicures.
