Nails: The Modern French Mani This isn't your high school prom French manicure. The Fashion Week French got a fresh, fun twist with color. To get the look seen here at Tess Giberson, manicurist Jin Soon Choi prepped nails with her JinSoon Power Coat base coat before applying two coats of a dark gray metallic polish set to launch in Fall 2014. (If you can't wait that long, we suggest JinSoon in Mica or Obsidian.) After the nails fully dried, Choi used her polish in Kookie White to create a thin arc at the tip of the nail, letting it dry before finishing with a coat of Top Gloss.
The process may be the same as your standard French, but the results are completely contemporary, whether you opt for sheer nude with gold tips a la the Suno show, the dark metallic and white combo from Tess Giberson or your own creative color duo.
