French Manis have made their biggest comeback ever, with variations dominating red carpets and social media trends. From ‘Vanilla’ to ‘Micro’, the French Manicure resurgence has inspired us to go back to our roots and remember OG nail look first began.

American-born professional nail brand ORLY and its founder, Jeff Pink, are famed for bringing the world the French Manicure all the way back in 1975, when Pink created a natural nail look to help screen actresses speed up the time between wardrobe changes. Simple, classic, and feminine, this time-saving manicure accentuated the nails without ever upstaging the outfit. Stylists and stars loved the new look that quickly spread through the fashion world. Once it hit the runways of Paris, Jeff knew he had the perfect name… the French Manicure!

Nearly 50 years later, the classic-mani has had a major glow up, and ORLY’s high-quality, professional finish Nail Lacquers are the nail-wardrobe staples you need to recreate the insta-ready look. Apply ORLY’s Pink Nude, a sheer pink-nude from the ORLY French Manicure range, across the nail for the perfect nude base. To complete the look, apply ORLY’s White Tips, White Crème, a bright, white polish, to the tip of the nail for the perfect French manicure!
