If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it 100 times: the 90s french mani is back and better than ever this year, with the ‘modern French’ having ruled our insta feeds for a while now. Whilst we for sure won’t be bored of our beloved fave any time soon, there’s recently been yet another new take on the trend that is filling our feeds – and saved inspo pics – ready for summer. Say hello to the reverse french mani.
Also known as cuff nails, the reverse French mani pretty much does what it says on the tin – picture a classic (or modern) French mani, then flip it. Go subtle with a classic nude or clear base, or make a statement with a bold or bright palette. The reverse French flourish is pretty much open to interpretation too – pick a dainty accent in a solid colour, or go all out with glitter or nail art design. We’ve seen everything from floral to animal print – as well as the reverse French being incorporated into more elaborate nail art sets or combined with a classic French for the double-cuffed look. Frankly, we’re here for all of them.
