    Out of the two, I like the nude better. It seems more neutral and match anything you change into later.

    I’m always a fan of French! I think it’s just such a classic look!

    Yep- you can’t go wrong with the french! The other looks a bit too plain.

    You can never go wrong with nude! It’s classic.

    I like American manicures. They seem to be more a more muted version of the French manicure – not such a huge division between white and nude. I think they look more natural but still classy and polished.

    I went with the ‘American manicure’ which is basically a French with a not so shocking white tips. It looks more natural in a sense.

    I tend to think french looks very dated/80’s in most cases…sometimes, I like it, but I’m not a fan of the pic you posted above. I’d go with the nude if I were chosing between french and nude. I plan on doing a dark color for my nails on my wedding-maybe a plum or deep burgandy (fall wedding).

    ETA-I wanted to show a comparison of a good (IMO) french mani and a cheesy one- 

     I think the 2nd one looks seriously cheesy, but the first is ok.

    French over nude- but if it was a different color nude.  To me it looks too white, how about a fleshy/nude? I love some sparkly too.

    Personally I think french manicures look really dated. I’d go with nude or pale pink.

    I don’t think french manicures are outdated at all!  I think they’re timeless and classic, much like solitaire engagement rings!  🙂

    The french manicure is classic and timeless. I think the nude could pull a more yellowy color. I know I’ll be going with a classic french manicure for my wedding!

    What about a French with a sparkle here or there?
