In Defense of the French Manicure

Curated via Twitter from Glamour’s twitter account….

The new French mani I’m seeing on cool girls far and wide has a rounded shape with a delicate tip (unless of course you’re going for a true throwback look à la Kim K’s recent trip to the nail salon, in which you have my full support).

Plus, the style makes nails look super long, especially when updated with a subtle white-to-pink ombré like Kendall Jenner's on the cover of Vogue Italia (when two members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan jump on a trend, you know it’s about to be huge).

French manis are elegant and hearken back to classic nail looks from the fifties and sixties, yet they feel clean and modern at the same time.

A good place to start is with a French manicure kit, or I like Sally Hansen's nail art pen if I'm going to do a colorful tip.

I was sold as soon as I saw Lily-Rose Depp wearing a French mani on Halloween, but if you still need convincing, I've provided some of my favorites I've spotted below.
