You might think of a French manicure as the most classic-looking nail style, and while it's definitely timeless, there are new ways to spin the design for a more modern take. Beauty salons are getting creative with foils, ombré hues, rhinestones and even small calligraphed details.

Still feelin' the classic vibe? No pressure. Go with a natural white and nude polish combo to achieve the look.
