A 21ST CENTURY TWIST ON THE FRENCH MANICURE

From the day that ORLY founder, Jeff Pink, created the very first French Manicure, ORLY has been evolving the look based on fashion and beauty trends.

Take a browse through this booklet to discover completely re-imagined twists on the pink and white classic nail look. Today a French Manicure comes in all guises, from multi-coloured tips, bold black and white designs, negative space to 3D textures.

Blurred lines, asymmetrical tips, accentuated cuticles and even tip piercings and textures are used to bring this classic look right into the 21st Century.

 

 

HERO PRODUCTS

 

THE ORLY VINTAGE FRENCH

 

A timeless nail look for the glamorous sophisticate (or wannabe), the ORLY Vintage French: as classic as a red lip, winged eye and the iconic Chanel bag. Wear from the office and into the night, this look goes with any outfit (as long as it’s black).

 

Products used: ORLY Primetime, ORLY Bonder, ORLY Prelude To A Kiss, ORLY Haute Red and ORLY Glosser.

THE ORLY METALLIC FRENCH

 

A 21st Century twist on this classic mani, the ORLY Metallic French adds a metallic tip or cuticle moon for a real statement nail look. For a Winter look wear it dark with a gilded tip or experiment with corals and pastels teamed with rose gold cuticle moons or cold silver tips for your Summer style.

 

Products used: ORLY Primetime, ORLY Bonder, ORLY Snowcone, ORLY Shine, ORLY Rage, ORLY Luxe, ORLY Tip Guides, ORLY Flash Dry Drops and ORLY Cuticle Oil Plus.

THE ORLY GRAPHIC FRENCH

 

For a graphic look that is completely wearable, the ORLY Graphic French is all about subtle design on the cuticle moon. Add an accent on each finger, adorn the cuticle with prismatic triangles, asymmetrical shapes or perfectly placed dots. Keep the smile line simple in white or black and the space in between negative and bare.

Products used: ORLY Primetime, ORLY Bonder, ORLY Liquid Vinyl, ORLY Naked Ivory, ORLY Polishield and ORLY Argan Cuticle Oil Drops.

 

THE ORLY FRENCH MANI SHE SAID YES

 

A soft update to the classic bright white and baby pink original French Manicure by Jeff Pink, the ORLY ‘She said YES’ creates a delicate look by softening the tip line and blurring the lines in an ombre effect. Use soft pink nudes and off whites whilst adding shimmering hints of glitter on the cuticle to add sparkle for those engagement ring selfies or for the big day itself.

 

Products used: ORLY Primetime, ORLY Ridgefiller, ORLY Rose Coloured Glasses, ORLY Lift The Veil, ORLY White Tips, ORLY Prisma Gloss Silver, ORLY Won't Chip and ORLY Cuticle Care Complex

THE ORLY ANTI-FRENCH 

 

For the girl who would never be seen dead in a traditional French Manicure, the ORLY Anti-French is all about colour blocking, clashing hues and crystal piercings. Be the opposite of obvious by focussing the detail on the cuticle rather than the tip. This look is for the daring and the brave (just don’t mention the F word).

 

 Products used: ORLY Bonder, ORLY Primetime, ORLY Fancy Fuchsia, ORLY Royal Velvet, ORLY Matte Topcoat and ORLY Cuticle Therapy Creme
