Black Tip French Manicure
 
  1. Cosmic French The classic French manicure featuring a nude pink base and signature white tips is a look made popular in the early 2000’s and has since become a staple in nail salons. Some may say the French manicure is timeless and chic, while others find it a bit outdated. If you’re the latter, we just may change your mind with these ultra modern takes on the traditional French. Get ready, because the French manicure has made a major comeback and it looks like it’s here to stay. Below are some of our favorite looks, all using colors and ranges from the SNS artillery.
