21 'French Fade' Manicures To Give You Major Nail Inspo
Add Tiny Jewels
A classic French fade manicure will feature a white tip fading into a nude base. If you prefer to take things up a notch, add a tiny jewel to the base of each nail.
The Long Fade
Make the most of your tip color by getting a long French fade, which will carry the tip color down to the middle of the nail or farther before fading into the base shade.
Dark Neutrals
Utilize beige and taupe shades, as in the picture above, or do a gray-to-black French fade on stiletto or coffin-shaped nails if you want an edgier look.
A Single Jewel
If you love a good accent but don't want to mess with the uniformity of your French fade, go half-in on your accent nail by bejeweling it to add visual interest.
Barely-there Mani
For a minimal bare look, use two shades that closely match each other and your natural nails. Use the lighter one on the tip and fade it into the darker one.
