Jeff Pink created the very first French Manicure, when he was just starting out in the nail industry.
Keen to ever-evolve, today the ORLY French Manicure can be re-created with a whole range of colours and bold, daring designs. Read on as we bring this classic look right into the 21st Century.
THE ORLY VINTAGE FRENCH
The ORLY Vintage French is a timeless nail look which can be worn from day to night.
THE ORLY METALLIC FRENCH
Alike the classic French Manicure, the Metallic French has a base colour with contrasting tips. The difference with this mani is that bold colours and metallics are used to bring the look to life.
THE ORLY GRAPHIC FRENCH
A subtle but effective look, the ORLY Graphic French is created using a nude base colour with asymmetrical shapes drawn into the half moon of each nail.
THE ORLY SHE SAID YES FRENCH
A pretty feminine twist on the ORLY classic French Manicure, the She Said Yes French still features whites and pinks but is updated with either a vertical or horizontal ombre effect.
THE ORLY ANTI-FRENCH
This look is daring and bold. It’s for any fashionista who wants to stand out from the rest of the fashion pack. To really make this look pop, go bright with colour choices.
