French Nail Tips

  1. Colorful French Tip

Add a dash of color to your French nail tips and look effortlessly vibrant all the time. Choose any bright hues like royal blue, hot pink, forest green, dark red, and so on for a radiant mani, or simply go for subtle shades that will give you a classic look with a delicate twist. If you want fun and quirky nail tips, paint them neon. You can also pick a single fingernail e.g. the nail on the ring finger and color its tip while keeping all other nail tips absolutely white.

  1. Reverse French Tip

As the name says, it is a style featuring French tips in a reverse manner. To be more precise, you need to create a half-moon-like pattern at the base of your nails starting right from the edge. Hence, it is also known as the ‘Half Moon Manicure’. Whether you stick to the nude base with a white moon, keep it black and white, or go for shades matching your outfits, your nails will always look super trendy in it.

Metallic French Tip

  1. Metallic French Tip

Nowadays, metallic French tips are everywhere. They not only add an amazing shine to our nails but also give them an elegant look. All you need to do is pick the metallic versions of your favorite shades (gold, silver, or any other heavy metals) and paint the tips of your nails with them carefully. The entire thing gets spiced up even more due to the reflection of light from the tips.

  1. Geometrical French Tip

Love geometry? Then, you’ll love these funky French tips too. All of these include straight lines made of different nail colors but the patterns and styles differ vastly ranging from the basic ‘two-line’ French tip to multiple colorful lines to diagonally divided tips with each side painted with different shades. For precision and perfect symmetry, make thin strips of scotch tape and place them strategically on your nail tips before applying the shades.
