The French manicure has been a go-to nail look for over 50 years and with good reason. It is understated, goes with every look and is chic, no matter the season. While we’ll always be loyal to the classic French, lately we’ve been crushing on the ‘french twist’. This is a trendy take on the French manicure that has been spotted on celebs and some of our favorite influencers. From metallic trims to sparkly embellishments, here are 10 ‘french twists’ we can’t get enough of. Keep on scrolling and make sure to screenshot!

Mega Mix 

These are what we like to call ‘drop the mic’ nails. From the diva length, to the sexy curved white tips and metallic moments, this is the mani to get when a statement needs to be made.  


Spring Vibes

Pastel colors at the tips of these nails instantly put your mani in spring mode. A pop of white adds an optic touch and is a great complement to the nude base color. 

So Jelly
Glossy, jelly nails are still the hottest look right now. When combined with metallic glitter tips and gem embellishments, this mani is so MAJOR.

Black is the New French
@enamelle, one of our fave nail artists, created this glossy black-tipped look. We love this edgy spin and are def copying it for our next night out.

Blue Streak
Thin blue tips are a nice contrast to this classic pink French and look great with the season’s denim obsession. 

Come Into Your Shell

Tortoise shell is perennially chic, but who knew it would also make for a killer mani??? We love the mix of tortoise shell, pale gold and robin’s egg blue on these gel nails.


The Butterfly Effect

Artful blue butterflies instantly take a classic French to new heights and give it a much needed spring awakening. Plus, butterflies just put us in a good mood!

Get (Rhine)stoned

Maybe it’s our nostalgia for the bedazzler or just our love for diamonds, but we can’t get enough of the embellished nail trend. We love this rhinestone look and the cool ombre-inspired tips.  

Here Comes The Bejewled Bride

The perfect something new. These nails have a little glitter, some rhinestones and V-shaped tips for a modern and fresh look for any type of bride.  

Red Alert

@tombachik is our nail guru for a reason. We can’t help but fall in lust with his red-tipped heart printed French mani for its sweet but sultry look.
