I know mine were thick, but that was because I didn’t have much nail underneath. When I got them done for our honeymoon 4 months later and my nails were actually grown out, they looked much better and were my actual nails.

I did a glitter ombré with an accent nail and I kind of wish I had stuck with a classic French. But at the same time, I love all things glittery

Yes I find them out of style now. i used to love them when I was a teenager but now I think they are very dated. I just had a nude nail for our wedding.

Yes yes yes!!! French manicures, especially with the stark white tip, are very out of style.

A clear, pink hue over bare nails is much nicer!!

natalienz:  the tip pic you posted is perfect and is what I would call an “American”  manicure. I’ve never cared for the stark white tips, but when French manis were all the rage, I used to get milky pink nail beds and off white tips. The ladies at the salon told me it was called American Manicure. I’ve asked for it by name in many states and everyone seemed to know what I was talking about.

Yes I’ve thought french manis looked dated for a few years now. To me it just screams late 90’s/early 2000’s. I prefer short, solid colored nails. Plus I never understood paying to get get your nails painted to look so natural like you have nothing on them anways. Either that or the girls who have the super white, square long fake looking nails. Ehh..

“nude” or pale pink nails were my go-to for years and it just so happened that they became all the rage right around the time of my wedding. I didn’t want to look too ordinary, so I went with OPI bubble bath, grew them a bit longer than usual and had some swarovski crystals applied. I wanted more but the nail tech said it would look too clubby if I overdid the sparkle. I got a lot of compliments on them.

I don’t know if I hate them because they’re outdated or if they’re outdated because they’re so hateable, but either way I’m certain they’ll come back around.  I did a nude color with a very subtle glitter fade, which I’m sure will be totally outdated sometime real soon, if not already.

I wore a French for my wedding although I never see them anymore. I don’t think they will ever be out of style but pale natural shades and short nails certainly are more popular. Get what you love. I still think that a soft french looks clean and classic.
