Manicure Monday: The New French Manicure Series


This New French Manicure series consists of a modern twist to a classic manicure:

From French Manicure to Color Blocking Manicure | Polka Dot Frenchie Manicure | Orange & Nude | Broken Line

Black + white + metallic — What’s not to love? The accent nails are an idea that just popped up in my head as I was thinking of just doing black and white nails. It’s Fall, rose gold is bigger than ever, so why not add some beautifully colored accent nails to this new french manicure?

Here is a step-by-step tutorial on the New French Manicure:


1. Start with a base coat to protect your natural nail bed.
2. Paint nails white until they are opaque. Paint the accent nails rose gold.
3. Paint the tips with a black polish.
4. Once the manicure is done, seal the nail art design with a quick drying top coat. This will make the nail look shiny and the design last longer.

Of course you can do only black and white for a more bold effect, but since it is fall, I liked incorporating rose gold into the manicure. I hope you liked this as much as I liked painting it!

  1. Nice twist on the French mani – the black and white is so 60’s mod to me.
    But… I cannot hide it anymore… I’m not a fan of the ring finger accent nail! I never was a fan when it started making an appearance a few years ago and I still can’t get behind it. WHYYYyyyyy… is all I want to yell when I see the accent nail. I’m fine with nail art but why do just 1 nail different? Oh so quirky? Oh so against the norm? Ahhh ranting ranting. I’m not feeling well today sorry for being a crabby pants. 😛 Nothing against YOU personally. You’re awesome. ❤


      • Yes, anytime I see colour blocking I equate with mod. Same with black and white. At least I’m consistent!
        I’m feeling better, thanks! 🙂
        And I’m sorry for ranting. The accent nail just isn’t for ME but it’s lovely for others. I should have just shut my mouth. 😛 Ring finger / thumbs – whatever. 😉
