A French tip manicure polishes the nails in two colors, one for the bed and one for the tip. French tip manicures are traditionally used to give a glossy and professional look that mimics the natural nail in pink and white, but newer variants may utilize other colors.

What exactly is the distinction between French and American nails?
The main distinction between a French and an American manicure is the color, although the shape of the final nails may change somewhat in some salons. A typical French manicure begins with a clear pinky tone base all over the nail, followed by a dense white tip painted over the ends.

How long does it take to get a French manicure?
A standard French manicure should last 7-10 days, depending on how much you use your nails. A gel French manicure should last at least 14 days.

Is it better to have gel or acrylic French nails?
Pink and white acrylic nails, often known as French tips, are a style that features white tips on a pink manicure base. They are normally accomplished by sculpting or attaching a plastic tip to the nail and covering it in acrylic powder and/or gel.

Do short nails look well with French tips?
Because there is no harsh white boundary separating the nail bed from the nail tip, the french manicure gradient works best on shorter nails. As the white tip gradient fades, it creates the illusion that the nail tips are longer.

What Are French Tips?
Now that we know where the name comes from, what are French tips actually, and how do you achieve this classic look?

French tips refer to the white polish on the tips of the nails, above the base of the nail which is traditionally painted in a pinkish nude tone. The look is meant to provide a more bold replication of nails’ natural colors, though today you’ll see French manicures in a wide range of shades that certainly look anything but natural.

To achieve a picture-perfect French manicure, most manicurists rely on French tip guides in order to achieve as clean of a line as possible between the base of the nail and the tip. After applying a base coat, the guides are applied and then white is painted on the tips and a pale shade on the base, followed by a top coat. And just like that, a stunning and simple French manicure is complete.

History of the French Manicure

It may be called the French manicure, but this trend actually has its roots in 1970s Hollywood. Jeff Pink, the founder of the ubiquitous nail polish company Orly, is credited with coining the name in 1978, though it was cosmetics kingpin Max Factor who is believed to have invented the look itself all the way back in the 1930s.

The “French” connection here is due to Factor’s claim that he first created the manicure for fashion-forward women in Paris. It was Pink however who created the first French manicure kit and took the look mainstream. Pink also said that it was his practice of painting the trend on Parisian women’s nails that led to the term.

Disagreements over the name’s true origin aside, it wasn’t long before the French manicure took over in Hollywood — and eventually across the U.S. and the world. Interestingly, France borrowed the name when they adopted the look, calling it a French manicure.
