Ombré French tips
While classic French tip nails show off crisp and clean lines, these ones soften the look with an easy ombré that gradually fades from dark to light, from the bottom to the top of the nails.

Gradient French tip nails
Unlike the ombré French tips that we described earlier, these nails boast a gradient that changes from tip to tip. The thumb wears the darkest pink, and the pinky the lightest, pastel pink hue.

Just add an accent line under your regular French tip design for a subtle switch in style.

Mix single colour and French tip nails
Simple yet super chic, this mix of French tips and single-coloured nails combine two classic designs for a playful summer vibe.
Black and pink French tip nails
Black and pink are a stunning combination of sweet and edgy. Flaunt a style that’s somewhere in the middle with this unique French tip nail design. The curved French tip silhouette hugs the side and bottom of some nails, instead of outlining only the nails’ tips.
Popsicle French tips
Popsicles are sweet relief on a hot summer’s day, which is why you need these ice cream French tip nail designs to give a happy hat’s off to this season’s essentials.
Bright butterfly French tip nails
Think of summer, and everything that’s bright and cheerful comes to mind, including butterflies.
This design lets you sport an entire rainbow of colours on your nails, since each butterfly is painted on with at least four different shades. Pair your vibrant nails with trending chunky ring accessories, and you’ll be all set!
