Stay Glitz

Upgrade the traditional French with a glitter accent as the tip. Whether you choose a classic gold or color glitter, your toes will be sure to stand out.

Electric French

Hop on the neon trend with this creamsicle orange French design. Remember to finish off with a top coat for a long-lasting pedicure.

Accent Party

If you don’t want to completely steer away from the traditional French pedicure, add in a pop of color or foil to enhance the look. No foil on hand? Nail stickers work well for this style, too.

Pink Dreams

Trade your traditional nude or sheer base with a pop of color this season. Play with pinks, oranges, or yellows for a summery vibe that will complement your favorite warm-weather outfits.

Micro French

Who says micro French designs should only belong on nails? Opt for minimalism this summer with this classic yet modern twist.

Go Bold

Celebrate color and warmer temperatures with this bright red French pedicure. The best part, this style looks great on any nail shape — round or square.

Ocean Breeze

Summer calls for long days in the sun and at the beach. Channel this energy with an ocean inspired French pedicure. And if you want even more of an oomph, add in some Y2K-style toe rings as well.

Modern Classic

Sometimes one is plenty. Which is certainly the case with this modern twist. Paint on a French tip on your big toe and add a solid white polish to the rest for a chic and easy summer pedicure.
