What is a Coloured French Manicure?

We all love a manicure. The look and feel of freshly maintained and painted nails never fails to make us feel confident and beautiful. Manicures are some of the most popular treatments here at Cecily Day Spa in Berkhamsted, and we can absolutely understand why.

French Manicure Magic

Tipped French manicures always have a place when you want beautiful looking nails, but the advent of full-colour nails has overtaken the traditional French polish in popularity over the last few years. But now, the French manicure is back on trend, albeit with a bit of twist!

Traditional vs Modern French Manicure

The traditional French manicure was especially loved back in the ’90s, and with all things nineties having a revival, we assumed nail trends would not be too far behind. The original French manicure had neutral glossy nails with think white tips at the end of each nail. Today the modern-coloured French manicure is putting a whole new twist on this older style.

The modern French manicure now is hitting Instagram hard with everyone trying out this new colourful style. The central part of the nail is still left as natural as possible, but instead of a thin white tip at the edge, there is now a skinny band of colour, lifting the French manicure to new modern heights.

How to Wear a Coloured French Manicure

There seem to be no limits in the choices you can make with this new dipped and tipped French manicure style. Much as the dipped hair trend, adding a flash of colour to the tips was so popular that this manicure style would follow suit. You could even dip your hair and your nails with the same colour!

The new colourful French manicure is more youthful and eye-catching than its traditional big sister, and there is a wealth of colours to explore on the tips. Everyone from influencers to businesswomen are choosing this new style, the former choosing bright colours and the latter sticking with more moderate backs and navy blues. The skinnier the tip, the better. This keeps the colourful French manicure looking fresh and not frumpy.
