Okay, it’s about time I admit it: my love affair with french manicures is real. When the style supposedly feel out of style a few years back thanks to the re-emergence of Y2k-inspired nail art and subsequent stylistic shift towards longer nail lengths, there was definitely a time where french suddenly weren’t everywhere anymore. However, because I grew up studying classical ballet and was often discouraged from partaking in many of the bold nail trends that graced the pages of my magazines and, later, social media platforms, it took me years to step out of my comfort zone and look for ways to jazz up my beloved french mani.
That’s when I discovered the combined magic of Instagram’s ‘save post’ function and fashion girl Pinterest boards as a source of endless inspiration for my nail appointments (and it made describing exactly what I wanted to my manicurist that much easier). With that being said, I spent hours scouring the internet for the best, fashion-forward ways to upgrade your everyday french manicure.
