of course french is classy, love it as long as it's short - can't stand when girls get acrylics with french...

I always have a french manicure because I'm obsessed with clean nails. Don't get me wrong I still clean my nails but there's a certain clean look about the french that I love.

They look nice, but the nails can't be too long. The one in the picture is just right :D

If done well, they look classy and certainly never ruin an overall classy look. I still think they're a little too easy to do badly though. Or wear badly.

I had a french manicure today on my short nails and it looks fab! So it should do for £23 though :o

Real nails only, then they're lovely.

I do not think they are only tacky on toes. I think they are tacky everywhere... Why not play with fun colors on your nails (toe and otherwise)? It can change a whole outfit and bring something new and sophisticated to your whole look. Though, the nail color should never be chipped and never look run down.

Oh and as for fake nails, I think they look alright if they're kept to the natural off-white shade of the added tip. Otherwise, no.

I had mine done for my friend's wedding, and I was in love with them. It stayed for over a week without chipping, and it made me start to look for the equipment to do it like they did in the salon. They put on the white and then used a large flat brush dipped in a liquid (I'm assuming np remover?) to define it. Anyone know where to find that stuff?

I love it on fingernails that are not long & not fake ones. I hate it on the toenails, long or short. (My sister thinks hers are fine, because she keeps the nail short & the line thin.....still yucky!)

When they are thin like the pic... I love them. But when they are long fake nails and the white is so bright I hate it. And it all depends on the person.

French manicures are classic, but it depends on how it's done. I think they look great on real or fake nails...Now if your fake nails are as long as your finger, the french may not be for you...

I like a french manicure, so long as the nails aren't too long, and I just DRAW the line at french pedicures, reminds me of african hookers!

I keep my nails short and have been doing my own french manicures for a year now. Everyone always thinks I've been to a salon and just had them done. It takes some practice to figure out the best system for you, but it can be a great look!

I always thought that FM's were supposed to be subtle. As soon as they started airbrushing the tips, the FM lost it's luster for me. Then they started doing it to toes. That's just wrong, IMO. :cocktail:
