You’d be surprised how easy it is to add some color to your life. It’s at your fingertips – literally!
Classic French tip nails are a timeless look, but in 2022 it’s about to get much more interesting. This year, one of the hottest trends is colored French tip nails. From bright and vibrant nail designs perfect for summer days to monochromatic, chic, and elegant for a night around town – a colorful French manicure can be the tipping point of your outfit from dull to WOW.
And from my experience, this uncommon added touch of fashion will be at the center of conversation as well as make some head spin.
But first thing first…
What Are Colored French Tip Nails?
In short, colored French tip nails combine two classic manicure looks into one beautiful design. The traditional French tip manicure features white tips with a nude base coat, while colored French tips feature vibrant colors such as pink, yellow, blue, or green. You can choose from solid colors or mix and match different hues to create a unique look.
Colored French Tips VS Colored French Manicures – What’s the Difference?
I’m assuming that most, like me, would not do their own manicure… So I’m pointing out what for some may be obvious but for others may be a mistake at their next nail salon visit… make sure you are clear about what you’re asking. Remember, there is no “nail dictionary” out there that salons follow…
When asking for a colored french tip nail design it usually means that the base coat is of a neutral color and the tips are with color. It can be a single-color or even a multi-color design (which we’ll see down below).
However, when asking for a colored french manicure, the touch of color can be at the base or at the tip – “no rules” apply with this one, and there are some crazy combos…
It doesn’t really matter, no right or wrong. In fact, I personally LOVE both and we’ll go over TONS of inspo nails here below… just make sure you and your salon are on the same page (or color…).
Leading French Manicure Colors
Not all colored French tip manicures are created equal. Here are some of the leading colors that you should look out for in 2022:
Black French Tip Nails –
Most popular and sought-after colored tip. Perfect for goths and rockers on one hand, or the elegant and chic lady of the night on the other. Black French tips will add a bit of edge to your look.
There are many ways to implement black tips nicely. In fact, it’s quite difficult to get them wrong. In the above examples, you can see all of the most popular options. From a slim narrow tip on a soft white base to an implementation on a long and pointy nail shape.
I especially love how the black tip complements strong pink or even white base – the contradicting colors work!
Pink French Tip Nails –
Second in popularity only to black, pink is the favorite color of many. Whether it’s a soft, pastel shade or a bright and vibrant hue – this color will always be in style.

With the right colored base, this near-classic look is anything but ordinary. Bold, white tips will make your look stand out from the crowd.

Sultry and sophisticated, red tips will always be in fashion. Pair with a matching or contrasting color for a perfect look that won’t go unnoticed.

Different Color French Tip Nails –
If you really want to go all out with your nail art, then why not opt for multicolor nail design? You can mix and match different shades to create a unique pattern or even use glitters and gemstones for an added wow factor!
