We never thought the day would come when we'd walk into the nail salon and request a French manicure. But we're reconsidering what many refer to as the "ugly" '90s trend, thanks to the all the cool designs we saw at New York Fashion Week.
Backstage at Tibi, Cushnie et Ochs, Monique Lhuillier and Nicholas K, manicurists painted fancy and funky tips onto models' nails. Morgan Taylor lead artist Gina Edwards best described this modern twist as "Not Your Mother's French Mani," as the new look involves bold polish colors, foils and brushes to remix the classic thick, white tip.
From V-shaped nails in rich burgundy hues to monochromatic manis with a blank center strip, there are plenty of ways to rock a French manicure. Not to mention, we learned a finger-rolling trick from celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann that makes recreating these contemporary designs super easy.
