The origin of French manicure can - depending on the source - be found on the Parisian catwalks or on the US movie scene: Because the French models' nail fantasies could possibly divert attention from the haute-couture clothing, the designers decided that the models should not have bright nail colours or nail fantasies. In order to stroll on the catwalk with well-groomed nails, the nails of the models were treated on the basis of the natural colours: pearly white nail edges combined with a natural or light pink colour for the nail bed (the so-called French manicure). Another story is that Jeff Pink - the founder of Orly - invented this nail look to give American actresses an identical nail look that fits everything, even if they changed outfit (previously they had to change nail colour with each new outfit). Interview Jeff Pink

The French manicure immediately became a success on the catwalks and a trend all over the world. Meanwhile, this way of nail decoration has become somewhat of a household name.

Especially in summer, this is a real attention-getter in your slippers by the pool, barefoot or on the beach. You no longer have to worry about it, and the water of the swimming pool or even the sea does not affect the gel layer.

A French manicure is also ideal for concealing the difference between shorter and longer nails. the white border makes the short(er) nails optically longer. A French Manicure is always a stylish and clean look! It is therefore logical that this classic among nail looks has existed for so long but has known many revivals. It looks natural and well-cared for, and that never goes out of fashion.

FAQ

A French pedicure reinforces your toenails with gel and results in pearl white nail edges. It is therefore the same as a French manicure, but applied to your toes.

Of course, a French manicure can also be applied with gel polish instead of gel. An equally beautiful result that naturally has a shorter durability than gel nails. Our nail studio also has gel polish in our assortment.

A thick or thin French manicure?

The gel layer on your nails or on your artificial nails should resemble as much as possible the shape of a beautiful, natural nail and certainly not put like a "ball" on top of your nails.

'The French'

The only real classic in nail art is and remains the French manicure.

The French manicure, very popular in the nineties, comes and goes throughout the years. The trend is now completely back, sometimes with a contemporary twist. Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé can be seen with nails with a 'French' effect.
