The Micro French Manicure is the Perfect Spring Nail Trend

Micro French Manicure Trend Inspiration Photos 2024

When french manicures made a comeback after previously falling off of our collective radar for a few years, they came back with a bang. In addition to the traditional style we were used to, we saw numerous other takes enter the rotation: deep french, double french, filigree β€” and that's only the tip of the iceberg. But the micro-french is different from all of those.

"[It's] a thin ribbon of colour to the tips of your nails," nail technician Mariela Bosnjak from Rawr Beauty tells POPSUGAR UK. "Simple but so chic." It can be done in the classic white polish that we're all so familiar with, or you can mix it up by adding colour. Bright neon hues or metallic finishes make it especially fitting for spring and summer.

Charlotte Knight, nail technician, CEO and founder of CiatΓ© London tells us that the spring micro-French manicure will most likely have an interesting twist. "Nail art will be embracing spring in a more literal sense with nature inspired nail art. Fruity decals such as cherries and lemons are being added across multiple or one nail," she says. "Animal print too is being added, mainly as an interesting twist on a French tip. Tortoise shell, snake print and leopard print are going to be seen across nails as often as fashion in the upcoming month."

The micro French manicure's slim, barely-there stroke of colour along the edge of your nails over a neutral base is perfect for someone looking to dip their toes into nail art β€” or anyone who lives by the "less is more" philosophy. It's also great for natural and short-nail enthusiasts as you don't need much length to pull it off.

If you're looking for inspiration for the micro-french manicure trend to take to the nail salon, we've got plenty ahead.
