Pink French tip nails are an absolute dream. I’m a firm believer that pretty much everything looks better when it’s in some shade of pink. Nails are no exception.
French manicures are classic and timeless. But for those who like to put their own spin on their manicures, opting for a colorful version of French tip nails then this is the way to go.
I may be biased, but pink is often an easy choice. Pink is playful and feminine and anyone can find a shade that best compliments them.
A pink French manicure is feminine, modern, and classy, just like the person who chooses to wear it.
