9 Cool Twists On A Classic French Manicure

Posted: Updated:

French manicures are a classic when it comes to simple glamour. They've stood the test of time and are a staple for weddings, formals or the office.

But on this #ManicureMonday we found some Instagram pictures that transform the minimalist manicure into a creative canvas for nail art.

So, if you're over the harsh white line and opaque polish look, here are nine different ways you can dress up your next French manicure.

Skip the extra polish and pair the simple design with some arm candy.

Go for chrome and ripped denim (or any type of denim).

Fulfill your technicolor dreams with multi-colored tips.

Give your knuckle rings a partner in crime with some sparkling accents.

Allow the classic French mani to flourish with nature.

Put a different spin on ombré with a rainbow job done well.

Instead of believing in silver linings, why not go for gold?

Take a vampy turn with black tips.

Show your World Cup pride, no matter which team you're rooting for.
