An Updated French Manicure

Jennifer Lopez rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to beauty and this look is no different. At an outing in New York, J-Lo sported this reverse French manicure and we love it!

By turning the traditional French manicure on its head, you will keep your fingernails looking lovely and neat while giving your manicure an injection of freshness. Using a combination of neutrals is a stylish way to add interest to your hands without drawing too much attention.

Try: Essie in Ballet Slippers, $18.95; Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Peachy Keen, $14.95; OPI in Samoan Sands, $19.95; Zoya in Cho, $19.

Try: Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Calla Lily, $16.95; Maybelline Color Show in Porcelain Party, $5.95; Orly in White Out, $18.95; Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in White Crème, $12.95; AVON Nailwear Pro + in French Tip White, $12.99.

I used a Revlon white colour a few weeks ago and loved it – looked fantastic against my fake tan!
