Who said French tips are so yesterday? While the dainty manicure might have taken a downfall in recent years, it certainly is making its way back up again today! Seen on Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Lily-Rose Depp and more flashy names, it is no doubt that these classy nails are making a statement again.
A French manicure paints the tip of the nail a colour that contrasts or complements the chosen base colour. While the ‘older’ style sees a larger stripe of painted tip, the modernised style is all about minimalism. After all, less is more! Now, if you want to go down the classy road but want to make it fun, you can try switching up the usual pink base and white tip with different colours. Play around with matte and glossy and you might be starting a new trend.
Ready? Let your nails show how you’re elegant and fun at the same and book a spot at any of these 8 best nail salons in Singapore. Remember, there’s nothing a fresh manicure can’t fix!
