The "Invisible" French Manicure Is Our Favorite Fresh Twist On the Classic
Posted on January 18 2023
Minimalist nail art is “in” for 2023.
The latest comes in an iteration of the ever-classic French manicure, and this go around it’s getting the invisible treatment. The new twist is understated, yet eye-catching at the same time, and is easy enough to DIY at home.
The “invisible” French manicure starts with a neutral base, just like the traditional approach. But instead of accenting the nail tip with white or another color, you use a sheer polish to create a faint, subtle arc. That barely-there arc line becomes the guide for your design—simply draw on a thin, delicate line with a nail art tool using a vibrant bright, subtle glitter or understated neutral shade of polish to create the illusion of a tip with negative space (hence the name “invisible”).
One thing’s certain—the “invisible” French manicure is anything but boring. Scroll down for some examples of the trend, and shop our collection of 10-free Nail Polish shades to DIY it.
