The classic French manicure has stood the test of time when it comes to nail trends, but even classics deserve a fresh and modern update. For those looking to put a spin on the timeless look, meet the “Invisible” french mani — the eye-catching sister to our cult-fave nail art.

The “Invisible” French is understated and incorporates a subtle, barely-there appeal to the French mani. Like any standard French mani, the look starts with a neutral base. However, instead of accenting the tip of the nails with color, it calls for a sheer and chic finish to create that hallowed arc. There are many ways to elevate the “invisible” portion of the trend. Move away from the bright white at the tip of the nail and opt for clear jelly tips, shimmery colors or thin, abstract lines to fill in the negative space. There are many ways to achieve the “Invisible” French mani without overthinking it. As for any nail trend, have fun and do it the way you want to.

Whether you fancy dainty finishes with glitter embellishments or want something more muted, anyone can partake in the “Invisible” French mani look. If you do happen to try out this moment, hit Hypebae’s Beauty IG for a chance to be featured.
