The slanted French manicure is gaining momentum. Here’s why

French manicure is a classic nail art design that never goes out of style. It is the safest option for those who aren’t big on experimenting and always ends up looking super chic and stunning.

However, this nail art only looks stunning on longer nails. If you haven’t had the chance to give this manicure a try because of your short nails, we have good news. There’s a new French mani trend doing the rounds and guess what, it doesn’t require your nails to be a certain length.

A close cousin of the usual French manicure, the slanted French manicure just has a slight twist, which makes it *drum roll* absolutely perfect for people with short nails! Unlike the usual manicure that follows the natural tip of your nails, this variation features a slanted tip that helps create the illusion of longer nails. How cool is that?!

Ahead, all the inspo you need to give the mani trend a try.

For girls who like a little drama (manicure wise), here’s the perfect design for you. Simply pick a deep blue colour with glitter particles and apply it to your tips in a slanted fashion and then add a black outline. Easy-peasy, yet so pretty!
