Interesting: what is the history of French manicure?
Contrary to popular belief, the French manicure did not originate in France, nor was it invented by a French citizen. In fact, it is an invention of the American Jeff Pink. In 1978, he developed the first DIY French manicure kit for Hollywood actresses. He says that directors complained about how long it took actresses to change their nail colors, so they asked him to develop a color that would match every wardrobe change. The stylists and actresses loved the simple, feminine and elegant look Pink created.
Pink then traveled to Paris and manicured models’ nails at a fashion show. When he returned to Los Angeles, he named it the “French manicure” in honor of his friends in Paris who supported his vision of nail design.
To this day, the French manicure and pedicure is one of the most polarizing and preferred.
