The "Side Tip" Nail Art Trend May Be Your Next Go-To If You're Over the French Manicure

The french manicure has been everywhere lately — on a handful of celebrities, your friends, and probably you — but some nail artists are choosing to put a modern twist on the look with the "side french tip" nail-art trend. The look includes straight lines drawn diagonally across the nail, from one side to the center of the tip.

Kylie Jenner's go-to nail artist Chaun P. has been highlighting the trend on Instagram, referring to it as "side tips," and showing different variations of the trend on his clients. Many people are choosing to wear side tips in the classic nude and white tip combination, but others are combining this new look with other fashionable color combinations like neon nail polish hues and the paint-chip manicure trend.

No matter your style preference, there's a look for you. Check out all the ways beauty-lovers are wearing the side-tip manicure trend.

Classic Side-Tip Manicure

Use neutral pinks and beiges with a white side tip for a manicure that will match any outfit but still has a modern twist.

Negative Space Side-Tip Manicure

Negative space is all the rage in the nail-art world, and adding it to your side-tip manicure gives it a fun twist.

Ombre Side-Tip Manicure

Into the "skittles" trend but want something a little more subtle? Try doing an ombre side-tip french manicure.

Neon Side-Tip Nail Trend

Add a pop of neon to your side-tip manicure for a subtle take on a bold trend. Shades of neon green and pink are sure to warrant compliments.

Colored Side-Tip Manicure

Pick your favorite hue to mix up the side-tip manicure. You can experiment by changing the color of the tip, the base, or both for a unique look.

Paint-Chip Side-Tip Manicure

Combine multiple trends at once by wearing a paint-chip side-tip manicure. Pick a palette of coordinating polishes in a single shade (like pink) or try choosing different colors that are similar in saturation (like an array of pastel or neon shades) to be worn at the tips.

Printed Side-Tip Manicure

You can also try a patterned manicure with the design only on the tips, like this cow-print one.
