Manicure Trend 2022: Outline French Nails are the coolest nail trend in spring 2022!

French manicure is one of the absolute beauty trends that we always love to come back to because it is simple yet very elegant. Over the years, there have been many creative variations of this classic nail design. Last summer, for example, the French manicure with colorful nail tips was a total hit on Instagram. One of the latest 2022 nail trends inspired by French tips that we absolutely love is the "Outline French"manicure.

Outline French nails are the manicure trend 2022

Unlike the classic French nails, two thin lines are drawn across the nail in the Outline French manicure. That is why the nail design is also called Double French. The polish frames the tip of the nail, while the center remains neutral. This creates the illusion of a border.

This nail design is most easily achieved with a thin brush, which is dipped in white nail polish and drawn in two thin lines over the nail. A steady hand is required, however.
