9 Very 2019 Ways to Wear a French Manicure
From neons to nail art and more
It may sound like yet another beauty export from the land of all things chic, but the French manicure didn’t actually come from France at all. First dreamed up in the mid-‘70s by Orly founder Jeff Pink, this neutral look, with its clean lines and versatile palette, was actually tailor-made for Hollywood, and quickly became a staple.

The updated version is far from dated, with injections (and inversions) of colour, inventive shapes and nail art accents. Here are just a handful of the ways this classic look has been resuscitated with stylish results.
