WHERE DOES FRENCH MANICURE COME FROM?
Contrary to its name which could lead us to think that this nail makeup technique was born in France, the French manicure would in fact come from the United States. The French as we know it, was born in the 1970s, first for Hollywood stars. At the time, film producers and directors wanted to make up their actresses by emphasizing their natural features. The very purpose of the French manicure: to accentuate the free edge of the nail, the naturally white part of the latter.
While the French manicure has long been worn in rather thick strips on the nails, it has now given way to new French techniques, more modern and more graphic. It can be worn thin, very refined, two-tone, with the chrome tip or even with striping tape.
WHY WE LOVE HER SO MUCH?
The French manicure is the symbol of French chic. This is why it was named so. In reference to the natural elegance of French chic.
The French manicure goes with everything. For a wedding, a party or during the day, this manicure can be worn anytime. And go with any outfit.
The French manicure is super easy to do. Much easier than nail art in this case. It can be easily reproduced at home.
