A Floating French Manicure Is The Fall Nail Trend You Didn’t Know You Needed


I'm a simple woman, but there are three things in this world you do not f*ck with: my man, my money, and my manicure.

I don't have a man and my money is safely secured in a bank account of my choosing, so it goes without saying that I am very particular when it comes to my nails. New trends drop every day b, and it's hard to keep up, but luckily, fashion repeats itself, giving us ample time to maximize on the latest and greatest nail fads of all time all damn year.

French manicures are so 2011 and it's time you upgrade your classic look and opt for a new spin on your old school favorite, and floating tips might be the nail design you need to level up your style from cute to chic AF and we have the inspiration you need to pull it off.

The goal of an effective set of acrylics with floating tips is to apply a negative space design on the tip of your nail rather than your nail bed. Unlike the reverse french mani, this style offers the illusion of "floating" nail tips and uses color blocking to bring some edge to an otherwise simple style. Coined by nail tech, Tracey Lee, this look can be created both at home or in the salon. She told POPSUGAR:

"For many people, the challenging thing about a french manicure is creating 10 perfectly shaped nails. It's possible just to incorporate the french [design] on one or two nails, while the rest are full [block] color."

7 Black Men On TikTok Making Everyday Living Look ThirstTrappy

You know how many of us, ladies, keep wondering why men don’t have the same sexy, handsome looks of yesteryear? That look from the ‘60s to the ‘90s? I FOUND THEM. And guess what? They’re doing what “real” men do best…simply making themselves handy (and not just in the traditional, gendered sense of the word). These fellas make it easy to fantasize about the reality that there are still good men out there – men who come into the lives of women and make it easier and softer by contributing every day but meaningful ways.

No, I don’t know them in real life because I found them via TikTok, but that’s the fun of fantasizing. You get to take one piece of the pie and make up the rest of it as you go alone. It’s like a game of MASH–choose your fighter and then go from there.
