There is nothing as classic as a french manicure, but sometimes it can get boring. This look involves matte and glossy textures together to create a french manicure.

To spice up your regular french manicure, use matte nail polish as your base color and instead of white, take a glossy top coat and apply it just on the tips. If you don’t have a matte nail polish then add a DeBelle Matte Top Coat to your nail polish collection. The best part about this manicure is that it is so out of the box from the conventional french nails and incorporates your favorite color.

One of the prettiest manicures that you will never want to take off. It almost gives an illusion of a geometric nail art design with the diagonal division of texture.

All you need to do is apply your favorite color, top it off with a matte top coat. Then apply a glossy top coat to half of your nail at an angle. If you can’t work with steady hands then use a piece of tape as a guide. Remember to place the tape on your nail after the base is completely dry, otherwise, when you peel off the tape, the nail polish will not be in very good shape.
