I’m Bored of White French Tips, so I’m Asking for This Trending Style Next

There's nothing I love more than a classic French-tip manicure. This widely popular nail-art trend has had a revival over the past few years thanks to the quiet-luxury aesthetic, and I tend to wear it all year round, as the chic, minimal finish complements everything in my wardrobe. That being said, with spring right around the corner, I'm in the mood to switch things up and inject some colour into my nails. As a lover of all things neutral, I always get a bit scared of block colours in case I end up not liking the shade that I've chosen, so when I saw that pastel French-tip nails were a thing, I practically ran to my nearest nail salon.

As you'll see below, pastel French tips are the perfect way to add a subtle pop of colour to your nails without fully committing to a shade. If you can't make up your mind about what colour to go for, you can even opt for a different pastel hue on each nail for a fun twist on the trend. This manicure is perfect for spring and will brighten up your nails whilst still looking super chic. If you're yet to be convinced, keep on scrolling to see some of my favourite pastel French-tip nail designs that'll have me saying goodbye to my white tips for good.
